Don't have the time, equipment or inclination to care for chicks? Or were you ready for fresh eggs yesterday? This is the ticket! At 6-7 weeks old, these started pullets are ready to go outdoors, with no heat or special care requirements. Another wonderful benefit is that our juveniles are sexed twice, once at hatch and again at 6 weeks, which reduces your chance of ending up with roosters. Our six-week started pullets are floor-raised and socialized with humans, vaccinated for Marek's disease, and their beaks are intact—we never trim.

Houdans are a froofy French breed, just like their cousins the Crevecoeurs. They're also related to the Polish breed of chicken. Just like Polish and Crevecoeurs, Houdans are crested with fluffy 'dos and have a V-shaped comb. Houdans are unique, however, in having 5 toes and a beard.

White egg layers, Houdans are considered very docile and amenable to confinement—since they can't see super well, after all! They're also efficient in terms of food eaten to egg ratio. They're rarely kept, so yours is bound to be the talk of the town.

All 6 week old Started Pullets are shipped USPS Express Mail.
These pullets will be vaccinated for Marek's disease and will be 6-8 weeks old when shipped.

Please keep your 6-week-olds quarantined from your existing flock for four or more weeks, and take care when introducing them.
