Other Breed Class Weights: Dual Purpose, egg laying and meat production Egg Shell Color: Light Brown Egg Production: Not Listed Breeder Farm Source: One is a bully but if she is allowed to free range seems to calm down. Ordered 16 birds black sex link, australorp, wyandotte, buff orpington, barred rock bantam, rhode island red bantam , received 19 chicks-guess they through in a couple extra in case of shipping losses. All arrived happy and chirping; they are now 12 days old and all still doing well.
Note the estimated arrival date on the USPS tracking site is based on them delivering them to your house.
Had to scramble a bit since we were planning on another 24 hours not the hatchery's fault at all. The Black Sex Link has become the best egg layer in my small flock of six.
Austra White's sometimes have bad temper days and although smaller than the rest will act like they are in full charge. I wholeheartedly believe the Black Sex Link is a better choice of the three. One was a bully but that was taken care of by removing her from the flock, placing her in an animal cage, and let her watch the others free-range for three days before reintroducing.
She has behaved since. Husky birds for their weight. Review by rhodyray Consistent layer of medium to large eggs. Don't have expectations of extra large or jumbo eggs from these birds. One was picking on an Austra White badly to the point blood would be streaming out of the comb. Isolated the bad hen in a pet cage for three days and let her watch the other hens free-range.
Yup, I'm a parent that believes in effective discipline. Let her re-mingle after the three-day period while the other free-ranged and have an incident free existence since. The victim now has shown no fear of the former wicked hen and they hopefully living happily every after. Review by greenmamato3 We ordered our 15 chicks all pullets for Sept '15 and were delighted with raising chicks in the fall.
We are just a few weeks away, now, from receiving our first eggs. All the girls have grown vigorously and are great foragers. We have 4 black sexlinks, 5 barred rocks, and 6 brown leghorns. The color variation in the black sexlinks is beautiful. They are quasi iridescent. They adapted well when they experienced their first cold nights and are very reliable to go back to their coop each night.
Thank you so much for the high quality birds you sent us! We are very happy cackle patrons! They all arrived in great shape and looked lively. Once again, great customer service! I will absolutely order from you again. I now have a small flock of laying hens we hatched from some of the chicks we got from you a few years ago. They are healthy and productive. We once had a few chicks arrive thru no fault of yours a day late and we lost some, you were wonderful about replacing them. So I just wanted to say thank you from a happy loyal customer.
We ordered them Tuesday, shipped Wednesday and we received them today. They are all healthy and alive and are full of life and vigor. You will received our continued support. They made it just fine And I think you sent an extra chick. They are in their brooder boxes and such and are doing fine. I want to thank all of you for your work and patience with me as a first time buyer and I look forward to doing business with you in the future. I have tried many other hatcheries and they would not work with small orders.
If they would they would send cockerels along with the pullets for warmth and safety. Where I live I am not allowed to have roosters in my backyard flock. So again, thank you so much for making my dreams come true!
