    I'm going this weekend to look at some 22 week old pullets that just started laying. They're welsummers and j was curious what a person should pay about? They're from welp hatchery originally

    I don't know about that breed but thought I would just say that I bought a 25 week old Pullet from our local feed store for $40.00. She is a Chocolate Orpington which are a lite less common around here. The lady at the feed store said they usually sell their pullets for $25. I hope this is a little helpful!

    That's about what I was thinking. Somewhere between 20-25 or so. I didn't even know orpingtons came in chocolate. I bet she's a cutie

    Oh I love her! She's my first grown-up chicken. I also have 9 six week olds. I figure for the guarantee of a Pullet and not having to feed for 20 + weeks that $25 would be a good deal!

    Wow yeah she's gorgeous. I have some coming to point of lay that I've had since day old and I agree completely that it's nice to spend a little more and be guaranteed a hen. No chick starter or heat lamps and no Roos!

    It's true! The one thing lost with started pullets is the relationship. I don't know how this girl was raised and she's really timid of humans. Where as my babies, I feel like I really know and they really know me. It sounds weird, I know! I'm torn as to pullets or chicks for next time!

    Yeah whenever I get new ones I always go for atleast 8 weeks old and try to get from people who handle them. When they're new I always keep them locked up in the coop for a week or so so they know that's home and I bring them treats every day sometimes a few times a day lol. Within a couple days they'll be eating out of your hand and following you around.
