Chickens are not capable of sustained flight.

Chickens form firm friendships.


My family and I had the best time at your little farm last week. You took so much time to help us choose the right chicks and gave us a great tour of all of your fancy roosters. We are confident that we can too be successful at raising a flock!

Thanks again,

Dave Lawrence

Chick Sexing Guarantee

We do sex most of our breeds at hatching. This procedure is about 90% accurate. This also means that you have a 10% chance of getting a rooster.

If you ABSOLUTELY can not own a rooster, please consider purchasing color sexable breeds found in our Auto Sexing category.

While we do our very best to sell properly sexed birds, please understand the difficulty in this task.
If you get a rooster that was sold to you as a sexed pullet, and you can not keep it, you can request to return it to the farm. You will be issued a credit in the amount paid upon acceptance. The credit may be used toward any other bird, feed, or supplies.
