The end of chick season has arrived!
Friday, August 2
Rhode Island Reds
Blue Red-Laced Wyandotte's
**Straight Run indicates that the birds have not been sexed.
Prices vary by breed. Day old chicks start at $6.95 for standard breeds with more specialty/rarer breeds starting at higher prices. Prices increase every week as the day-olds develop at the store.
- new chicks need to be kept in a heated, protected area for their first 8 weeks
- hens start to lay eggs at 24 weeks - chicks you welcome now could be laying by the 4th of July!
- the typical layer will produce eggs for 4-5 years - some people like to plan for the natural attrition by adding new birds regularly - it's a great way to enjoy the many varieties of chicken breeds.
Quack. Peep. So Sweet.
(Blue Cochin, Gold Hamberg, Indian Runner Duck)
If you think you are ready to bring home chicks we are here to help throughout the process. We have lots of breeds arriving weekly--check below for the latest updates.
****If you come in planning on leaving the Grange with your new additions then we ask that you allow for the extra time it will take for one of our team to get you squared away. We find an average of 15-20 mins works well. Because of our many closing duties, we stop chick sales 30 minutes before closing: 5:30 pm weekdays and Saturdays, and 3:30 pm on Sundays. Thanks for your support!
