Do you want hens but do not want to start with chicks, or cannot find a supplier of sexed chicks in the breed you want? My sons (4-Hers in the La Crosse WI area) would be happy to raise chicks to either out-of-the-brooder or point-of-lay pullets for you this spring and summer! If you know what breed you want, we can arrange to get the chicks, even if they are only available as straight run. We will brood them to the point of being able to tell which are girls and which are boys. You can take the girls at that stage if you want to raise them from that point (when they will not need extra heat, etc.), or we can continue to raise them till they begin to lay. We raise birds on pasture in sliding shelters protected by electronet. We can feed organic feed from the start if you are willing to pay the additional dollars it will require. Prices will be negotiated based on the kind of birds you want, the age and date you want them delivered and the feed requirements you have. We will not guarantee "Show Winning" birds, but we know how to grow healthy chicks to ready to produce hens. Please PM me if you are interested.
