I've moved on from the notion of chicks this year - I really just don't have time. I'm in search of pullets instead, so if you know anyone who's got a few, I'm interested!
That reminds me, does anyone know if there are going to be any more chicken swap meets this year, around the Indy or donut county area? I'm not sure where else to go for that kind of information.
Murray McMurray has pullets too. Their prices are more inline with what I would expect but with shipping it gets expensive. However Meyer hatchery sells started pullets for less and if you order enough their prices are reasonable with shipping. I have no idea how they can raise the birds for so little.
Does anyone know who this is:
I don't know who it is, but I thought you were looking for leghorns.
I have several pullets for sale that are new to laying this fall. Message me with a number you'd like and I can give you my price and how far we are willing to travel to meet you / save you on gas money. I have to say though my prices are more than $12 for a new to laying pullet. $12 is a about what I would charge for a proven good hatchery quality laying hen as she goes into molt.
My breeds for sale include Black Stars, RIR, Red Stars, Black Austrolops, sumatras. All either from a hatchery or pet quality. Not a single show quality hen for sale here.
