>> Do you know of a chicken that needs to be rescued or rehomed? Please email me! I raise and rescue chickens <<
I have chicks available for adoption!
I personally HAND RAISE small flocks of rare, heritage, or just cool looking organic baby chickens so you don't have to! They are professionally sexed hatchery chickens with 90% accuracy. Chicks are vaccinated for Mareks and Coccidiosis.
I interact and play with the chicks everyday from the day they are hatched so they grow-up to be friendly pullets/hens for you. They are exposed to natural sunlight and fresh air, I clean their bedding every day, and I do not use wire mesh flooring since this is very stressful to the chicks. My humane and strict practices also guarantee that your chick comes to you disease and stress free and most importantly - healthy.
Chicks, pullets, and hens are fed only organic, non-medicated feed and pullets/hens are free to forage my property to eat insects, weeds, etc. in addition to organic feed.
The chicks go quick, so please email me ASAP to reserve your choice of chicks and setup a deposit!
Typically you will pick-up your pullets around 4-6 weeks old so they can be in your backyard coop with just a red heat lamp at night. A small deposit ($10) that goes towards the rehoming fee is required, so that I can reserve your favorite chicks just for you and I know you are serious about having chickens.
Chicks are also available on a drop-in basis. You do not need to reserve a chick if you are more flexible on breeds.
>>>I do not have adult hens or pullets available at this time.
Feel free to contact me about these chicks if you have any questions. If you would like a breed that I do not currently have listed below, please ask as I might have something in the works! If you have questions on what breed of chicken will work best for YOU, shoot me a message and I will help.
Mix up your flock - all the breeds get along well together; and it is more fun to have a colorful flock!
