that sells full grown chickens too? i would buy a bunch if i could buy them fullgrown.
Yes there are a few hatcheries that would sell pullets of that age but shipping is a killer at that price! You are limited in certain breeds such as White Leghorns, Sex Links and sometimes EEs.
I believe they all sell started chickens, (17 weeks) but they all cut their peaks back (sorry the term escapes me) so they can't pick at each other. I think that's inhumane personally.
Check on Craigslist, there is usually somebody getting rid of a bunch of chickens on there.
In addition, their beaks will be "trimmed," meaning they will be cut or burned off.
Meyers does, but they will be debeaked. Stromberg's sells adult birds also, but they're exhibition stock. Were I you, I'd just check local sources. Lots of people will run adds in the paper or free circulars, check craigslist also. You'd save a lot of $$ in the long run.
I don't know where in Kansas you are, but there are some local auctions throughout the state that sell poultry. Yoder's auction is tomorrow night at 6 if you're anywhere close.
