    Business is picking up for Spring, so I'm putting the word out for healthy, POL-age pullets for my clients' small, urban and suburban micro-flocks in the Boston area.

    Most of my demand will be for LF laying breeds, with a preference for birds with good "family-pet" temperaments. Any color will be considered, as will "barnyard mix" birds! Bantams are generally less in demand for my current clients, but I do occasionally get some requests for certain breeds. Price will vary depending on the bird's breed, quality, age, and health. If you're not sure, please just ask! It may be that I have a client looking for one! :D

    All birds MUST be pullets/hens, MUST be over 4 months old, and MUST be in healthy condition (no parasites, etc).

    High demand (LF):
    Ameraucana/Easter Egger
    Orpington
    Plymouth rock
    Faverolle
    Modern Game
    Marans
    Barnevelder
    Australorp
    Cochin
    Brahma
    Breda
    Crested Cream Legbar

    Low demand, but might be interested depending on the client:
    Silkies
    d'Uccles
    Polish (LF and bantam)
    Dominique


    Thank you so much, and I look forward to working with you!

    I'm in Metro NW Mass and have a couple of 1 year old laying hens I'd like to rehome. Pluses are they don't have to wait for them to lay. I also have a pair of Mille Fleur D'Uccles (cockerel & pullet, 8 weeks old). Message me if you'd like.

    Hi there,

    This thread is for pullets and hens for my clients in the Boston area - I'm a backyard chicken consultant for urban and suburban clients in the Boston area who want chickens, so I am looking for pullets and hens to purchase for my clients' family flocks. :)

    If you're in the area, I host monthly backyard chicken social events near Union Square in Somerville on the 2nd Tuesday of each month - come on out and join us! Check out www.yardbirdsbackyardchickens.com for up-to-date info.

    Thanks!
