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. Another wonderful benefit is you don't have to worry about ending up with roosters! Our five to eight-week started pullets are floor-raised and socialized with humans, vaccinated for Marek's disease, and their beaks are intact--we never trim.

Polish are a very special and unique breed of chicken with their huge bouffant crest of feathers and v-shaped comb. They are tame but their behavior can be a bit wacky since their crest limits their vision, so they can startle easily!

When in a flock with more aggressive breeds, Polish will tend to be on the low end of the pecking order, so keep this in mind when planning your flock: other breeds may like to peck at the crest and if this gets out of hand, your Polish can really get injured. If your coop and run have little space for birds on the low end of the pecking order to hide, be sure to plan your flock composition responsibly .

Egg laying is unreliable for this breed, and the eggs tend to be small. In short, Polish are sweet, beautiful exhibition birds, but a small flock of Polish is probably not the best choice if you want lots of eggs.

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.
