I don't sell hatching eggs or baby chicks.
I often have a few started pullets available in the summer, and breeding pairs or trios in the 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!
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 will become available around mid-June. These will be physically sound, healthy pullets that fall short of my breeding requirements and are considered layer-quality: $40 each.
Breeding and show quality pullets will become available in late summer. These are females that have no major faults or disqualifying features: $60 - $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. Buff Orpington, Black Cochin and Blue Cochin cockerels are $100 each. Rhode Island Red and Chantecler cockerels are $75.
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 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.
Over the years I've written a few articles for newsletters and poultry clubs.
