We know the secret to getting chicks: It’s all in who you know! … and we know the right folks.

We are your local dealer for Frey’s Hatchery (http://www NULL.freyshatchery NULL.com)  and Pullets Plus (https://www NULL.pulletsplus NULL.com/store/hens-pullets/) .

Looking for day olds, ready to lay, white or brown egg layers, and/or meat birds? Want to add turkeys ducks pheasants and geese to the mix?

Delivery dates tend to book /sell out quick, so if you want to avoid disappointment, we suggest you plan to research and decide well in advance !


We put out an annual chick package to help you make an informed decision before ordering:

~ ONLINE ~    Click here to see our  2020 Chick  price /selection/ delivery dates package ( PLEASE NOTE ORDERING DATES ARE NOW CLOSED- this 2020 package is for your advance reference in advance of the new one in 2021)

~ PRINTED COPY ~   Will be available in store by mid February 2021.


We’ll be sending out an email to our 2020 Chick Days customers who have given us their email address and requested this) with an updated 2021 Chicken package link as soon as we have confirmed our first Pullets Plus date. That is usually the end of January…ish.

As always, ordering must be done in advance – and suppliers still can only fill so many orders each year, so it’s a good idea to give us a call as soon as you decide on what and when you want… erm… what you want!

Frey’s Hatchery Ltd. (http://www NULL.freyshatchery NULL.com/) has been supplying small family farmers and hobby flock owners with chicks of the highest quality since 1946, raising the breeding flocks on family farms. You can expect many dates and choices. Order from us 5 wks in advance.


Pullets Plus (https://www NULL.pulletsplus NULL.com/store/hens-pullets/)  offers White and Brown Ready to Lay hens.  They added a third delivery date for 2020 :  April  – June – September . With free shipping and no minimum orders it is no wonder why – and all those dates sold out fast! Next year the September date may not be offered.
