    It's time to move out what I don't need to keep feeding here and get my pens organized again.

    Blizzard Jr & hen: asking $50
    White Araucana - both are rumpless
    Male is single tufted, female is clean faced
    Male has white legs and black spot of plumage (could have black or splash gene)
    Female is white with willow legs, yellow skin
    Both will be a year this fall. Proven breeders. I have only gotten white chicks from this pen, altho there are other hens in there as well. I am only selling this pair because I have Blizz Jr's son, who meets a better standard of perfection for my breeding program.

    Araucana pair: $35 for pair SOLD
    Blue male - beautiful double tufts and partial tailed
    Black female - beautiful double tufts and rumpless, however I do see 1 or 2 longer feathers hanging down, so possibly partial tailed.
    Proper leg & skin colors.
    These are approx 3 months old, not breeding or laying yet.

    Blue Ameraucana cockerel - $10

    Buff Orpington cockerel - $10

    Bantam Buff Ameraucana cockerel - $10

    8 Buff Orpington chicks - approx 1 wk old - $3 each
    Other pullet chicks - few days old - $3 each

    Partridge Chukars - approx 2 wks old - $3 each
    Quail chicks - day olds - $1.50 each
    Pheasant chicks - day olds - $1.50 each

    I can provide actual hatch dates on each of these if you're interested I'll look it up for you as they were all hatched here. All are standard unless noted. I would prefer pick up, but may ship depending on location & temps. Contact me for more info. Thanks for looking.

    Pheasants are seasonal layers, so as long as they continue to lay we continue to hatch. I'm not sure how much longer they'll go, as our wild turkeys stopped laying about a week ago. The pheasant and quail are still going strong at this point. We generally set weekly hatches for those while they are in season. Feel free to check back when you're ready.

    You are actually under and hour from me which is great! I am very interesting in purchasing some chicks and pheasants from you.. I am looking for only female chicks though - can u sex them? or is it basically straight run? I wont be able to get out there until the 1st weekend in August. About how many baby chicks do u have? I am still learning so i am not sure which chickens are layers.. but I just want layers because I can't kill them.. so any help would be appreciated! Let me know if this works for you.
    Thanks!

    I do not sex my own chicks that I hatch...no idea how and no desire to learn, as it's too time consuming for me. I do have some sexed pullets available right now from McMurray, but I don't expect to have them long. I think there are 9 of those left. My chicks usually sell out weekly. I try to have weekly hatches available, but sometimes I can't keep up with demand. We are a smallish farm and don't keep a lot of chicks on hand, as we run out of brooder space with all the species we have here. We do also have weekly pheasant hatches, but I would expect they'll stop laying soon as they are seasonal layers. All I could say is check back when you're ready for them and we'll go from there to see what we have available.
