We offer the pullets for sale beginning at 12 weeks of age for $30 each. On average, the gals should begin to lay eggs around 20-24 weeks, but each bird is different! By the time they are ready to go home with you, these ladies no longer require a heat lamp, they are foraging outdoors, and are trained to come into the coop to roost in the evening. They will be well socialized to children and dogs as well.
If you have a specific date and breed that you would like, please contact us to “hold your hen” so that you don’t miss out!
