New gates and pens
Many of our customers don't have the ability to own a rooster so they choose to order pullets. A pullet is a young hen less than one year of age. We normally ship our pullets out when they reach the age of 8 weeks old. They ship best at this age. If you order chicks from a person and they want to ship you birds that are 1 to 2 weeks of age it is best to decline their offer. Chicks do not ship well at this age, they aren't able to regulate their own body temperature at this young age nor do they have the body weight to sustain them during shipment. Shipping at 8 weeks is a good age and size, they are fully feathered at this time.
The farmer really hates it when I sneak around and snap candid pictures. Good thing he doesn't read the blog, Ha.
If you think you might be interested in a pullet, here are a few that we have ready now and some that will be ready soon.
I have some Olive hens that are about 5 months old, they are beautiful big girls. Olives Eggers can be black, blue and sometime splash. When ordering a hen this large we will only ship 1 or 2 per box depending on the temperatures while shipping. We also have younger Olives ready to go. She will lay a dark green egg.
Blue Copper Marans
I have Blue Copper Marans pullets about 10 weeks old ready to go. Look at that beautiful coppering on her head. She will lay a pretty dark chocolate colored egg
I have a couple of splash marans that are around 4 to 5 months of age, then I also have some around 10 weeks old. They will also lay the dark chocolate color egg. We only get a few of these birds each year and they are beautiful.
I have a few of these cuties ready to go. The Chocolate Orpington is a bantam but not a tiny bantam. If your looking for a pet bird this is the one for you.
In a couple of weeks I will have several Lavender Orpington ready to go. Lavenders are good layers and very friendly.
I will also have Black Copper Marans and Ameraucana hens ready in a few weeks.
If you see something your interested in, head over to the website and drop me an email.
Have a Great Weekend.
