PULLET DAYS + HEN & DUCK SUPPLIES

UPDATED 4/22/17

PULLET DAYS

WHAT: We host breeders and poultry raisers with Pullets aka "teenage" Hens & Ducklings for sale throughout the year, ready to be out in your coop and just laying or near laying age.  Breeds vary each time (see below). 

CHICKS?: If you are interested in purchasing baby chicks from us instead, click here peep peep! 🐥

WHEN: * Sunday, April 23rd at 10am *   Meet outside in our front parking lot.
Every 2 weeks til winter: 5/7, 5/21, 6/4, 6/18 and onwards.

BREEDS:  for 4/23 -- Australorp, Bantams, Barred Rock, Brown Leghorns, Cuckoo Marans, Sex Links and more!! Most importantly, all breed varieties will be determined by how fast Chris can run to catch them...  🐔🐔🐔 🏃

FUTURE: March 12th and generally every two weeks during spring/summer and once a month during fall/winter. Runner, Ancona and Pekin ducklings coming in April!

DETAILS: All pullet sales are first come, first served. All sales are directly through the breeder/raiser outside and cash only, generally ~$25 each.  If you would like teenage ducklings, bantam hens or a specific breed, please let us know a few days before and we'll try to help arrange availability.  We also have some specific duckling days in late spring / early summer.  

TRANSPORT: Please bring a pet carrier or suitable box 📦 to transport them home.  Make sure  their new home coop is safe and secure from predators, sheltered from the weather and ready to go with food, grit, oyster shell, a waterer and bedding when picking them up or purchase any extra supplies with us ahead of time when you come in.

ORGANIC?: Unlike our baby chick handling, we only host the people with teenage poultry and have not been involved with providing, nor raising them.  These chickens have been raised by folks outside of our shop and have often been fed a non-organic feed, due to the costs of raising a high volume of poultry and lack of demand / willingness in customers to pay more for pullets fed with certified organic feed.  If this is something you're interested in, please let them know.  Each raiser / breeder has different practices, please ask them about age, feed, vaccinations and any other questions you have about their practices.  As many of you know, who have raised chicks in the past and would now like pullets that are ready to go right outside, chicks take space, time, feed and a lot of care.  We are grateful to host the folks and connect you.
