    I will have lots of chicks available this season! My first hatch will be March 4th. I will update the post periodically with updates. [​IMG] I have a blue Frizzled EE rooster over hens of various breeds. Chicks will hatch out of a blue/green or brown egg, but will lay blue/green eggs. I do separate by egg color at hatch, so if you're looking for anything specific, I can tell what color egg each chick hatched from. Chicks hatched from blue or green eggs will be straight run (unsexed) and will be $5 each. Chicks hatched from brown eggs will be sexlinked - I will be able to identify the males and females at hatch. Females will be $7.50 each. Availability will be very limited, but I will be adding more hens to my flock next week, so I should be able to offer more sexlinked chicks. Approximately 50% of these chicks will be frizzled. Frizzles can't be identified at hatch, but I can usually tell by 1-2 weeks of age. At that point the price for frizzles will increase to $12 for straight run frizzles. I will also have some Olive Eggers, these are extremely limited. Smooth chicks will be sold at 1-2 weeks of age, they are $10 each (straight run). Frizzles will be staying here :) Shipping is available; depending on zip code, this usually runs between $35-60. This includes USPS Express shipping, a shipping box and bedding, gro-gel, and heat packs if needed. My hens include: EE's Wheaten/BW Ameraucanas (purebred) Marans (one black, one white) Olive Eggers (2 pullets - their info is below, both are F2) White hen: 1/4 Cream Legbar, 1/4 Leghorn, 1/2 Wheaten Marans Lavender hen: 3/4 Marans, 1/4 Ameraucana (lays a nice green egg) Barred rocks Barred Cochins Here are some photos... Barred cochin pullet - hatchery stock but I chose this breed because they are super sweet, calm birds and I thought it would be a fun cross. They aren't known for being the most prolific layers, but should be pretty obvious at hatch (with their feathered legs) if you aren't a fan. [​IMG] Barred rock hens [​IMG] One of my EE hens - this girl is super friendly and mellow. She is 1/2 wheaten ameraucana, 1/2 EE [​IMG] Wheaten Ameraucana (I also have a blue wheaten am) [​IMG] EE #2 [​IMG] White Marans [​IMG] My chickens free range much of the day [​IMG] Black Marans (doesn't have feathered legs but lays nice, dark eggs) [​IMG] Lavender EE (she does have a beard - it is growing back). She is 1/4 Ameraucana, 3/4 Marans - technically an F2 OE. She lays a pretty green egg that I wouldn't quite call olive. [​IMG] White hen - she is 1/4 Cream Legbar, 1/4 White Leghorn, 1/2 Wheaten Marans. She lays a brown speckled egg. [​IMG]

    Here are some photos of my first batch of chicks from this group! Some of these will likely be available. I also have another batch set to hatch on 3/18.

    Do you plan to have any older, coop ready hens available for sale?

    Not at this time. I may have older chicks available later in the season - I usually keep a bunch of chicks for myself and sell any extras when they get a little older, but those will be very limited. If you are interested please let me know and I'll add your name to the list.

    Quote: I love these two hens! If you get any females like them I'd be very interested. Don't mind waiting to ensure they're female, I'm limited in how many chickens I can have.

    I should definitely have some that look like Blue (and some will be her chicks). I'll have to see if I get any wheaten-type chicks - there are 3 hens in the pen but it depends on what color genes my rooster carries. In the first hatch the yellow chick is a maybe - I'll have to see how it feathers out. I will add you to the list for older pullets that look like those girls :)
