So.....we recently lost 3/4 of our flock, and are looking to add more that were the same as the ones lost (since my daughter keeps asking about them). I can't find 8 week old pullets of their breed anywhere!!! I finally found some at a farm that seems to be very reputable, but they want $20.00 for each one! Does that sound crazy to you? I bought mine for $4.99 each when they were 2 weeks old. Check out the web site, let me know what you think. I want to make sure I'm not insane for thinking about paying that much.... http://www.trunorthfarm.com/TruNorth_Poultry_Pullets.html Also, here's an exerpt from the site: About Us TruNorth Farm is Contra Costa County's premier provider of young hens ("pullets"). We share our clients' commitment to creating a healthy and sustainable lifestyle, and we believe caring for and enjoying the benefits of a backyard flock are positive ways to embrace our environment. We offer 100% breed standard pullets who arrive as day-old chicks from leading hatcheries across the U.S. Each chicken is hand-raised by our TruNorth team with the highest standard of care from the day they arrive to the day they are released to the public. Breed Selection TruNorth Farm has evaluated over one hundred poultry breeds based on four key criteria: egg-laying frequency, friendliness (docile rating), adaptability (tolerance for confinement) and beauty. Only those breeds, in our team's opinion, best suited for your enjoyment make the journey to be raised at TruNorth Farm. 100% of our pullets are sourced from leading U.S. hatcheries. This insures that (1) each and every day-old chick begins its life from the highest quality breed stock, and (2) all chickens are professionally vaccinated for Marek's disease. Pullet Development During their first four weeks, each "class" of pullets resides in temperature-controlled brooders where they receive around the clock attention and care. We monitor the health of every chick daily. After week four, they are relocated into a large protected coop where they enjoy lots of fresh air and the warmth of a custom heated shelter. Weeks five through eight are spent socializing, stretching, flying and bulking up on food during this fast growth stage.
