We order our chicks for arrival in the spring and late summer. We order a variety depending on customer interest, our own interest, and availability. We raise them in a warm brooder until they are ready to leave our coop for yours. We’ve already ordered a nice selection from Hoovers Hatchery for spring 2021. If there’s something you want to see in the Fall get in touch with us before July.
