I don't sell hatching eggs or baby chicks.
I often have a few started pullets available through the summer, and breeding pairs or trios starting late summer & fall.
Please feel free to email me if you have any questions or would like more specific information about my strains or availability. *Prices generally range from $40 to $100 per bird.
Thank you for your interest!
PULLETS, PULLETS, PULLETS!

These pullets have now been sold.
Please feel free to contact me if you'd like to find out more about what will be available later this summer and fall!
Prices based on farm pick-up.
If you are looking for higher end stock for starting a new flock or adding good genetics to your existing flock, please feel free to contact me and we can chat! Thanks for your interest in heritage poultry!
More about availability and pricing...
My number one objective is to continually breed better birds that come as close to meeting breed standards as possible. I hatch and raise the number of chicks I feel I will need to replenish my own flocks and keep their overall quality moving forward. I enjoy sharing birds with others when I am able to, but this is not the case every year, or with each of my breeds.
The first young birds available in late spring will be healthy pullets, but they might have colour faults or fall short of my expectations for breeding, so are considered layer-quality. Ave price: $40. Birds for breeding and show quality pullets will start to become available in late summer. These young adults have no major faults or disqualifying features: $50 - $100 each.
I am very selective when it comes to selling cockerels, and I don't always have extras available. They will be sold at (or close to) full maturity, which generally means September through November. Good, breeding quality cockerels average $75 each.
All birds will be healthy and sound when they leave my farm, however I am not able to provide additional guarantees past that. I place a high priority on achieving a balance of correct phenotype, along with vigor, good temperament and productivity, but cannot make guarantees on these or other traits that are not outwardly apparent such as fertility or life span.
At this time I do not accept deposits, but as birds come available I will be happy to contact everyone who has expressed interest by email. The birds will then be offered to those who are first to respond, and will be held for 1 week pending pick-up before becoming available for sale again.
Some good books to keep on hand:
