Don't have the time, equipment or inclination to care for chicks? Or were you ready for fresh eggs yesterday? This is the tickets! At 6-7 weeks old, these started pullets are ready to go outdoors, with no heat or special care requirements.
The Delaware chicken is a relatively new breed of chicken, having only been developed in 1940. They're a cross between New Hampshire Reds and Barred Plymouth Rocks with the goal of maintaining the prolific egg production of these two breeds but increased meat value. They're a lovely, calm white breed with black feathers around the neck and the tip of the tail, and with some black striations also working their way into the back. They perform well in the cold and will fare even better if their combs are protected from frostbite with the help of some petroleum jelly.
All Started Pullets are shipped USPS Express Mail.
Please keep your 6-week-olds quarantined from your existing flock for four or more weeks, and take care when introducing them.
These pullets will be vaccinated for Marek's disease and will be 6-8 weeks old when shipped.
