Chicks, Started Birds, Mature Birds
CHICKS TO ORDER
Order your chicks to hatch through our Shop page. You choose the breeds you want and quantities of each. Once we receive your order, we collect your eggs and set them in our incubators. When your eggs are set, we notify you of your hatch date. It is 21 days from setting to hatch. When your chicks hatch out, we notify you again and you may pick them up from our farm in Granbury.
CHICKS AVAILABLE IMMEDIATELY
Due to the extremely high demand for our chicks, we are hatching out regularly "on spec." You may inquire if/when our spec hatches are due and either pre-purchase or get on our notification list. If you pre-purchase chicks from the hatch, we fill your order in the order it was received. If there are any chicks remaining after pre-orders are filled, we then start notifying interested buyers in the order their name was placed on the notification list. Be aware that we usually pre-sell out of spec hatches, so if we are doing one and you definitely want chicks from the hatch, it's advisable to pre-order.

Sexed** - $30 female, $15 male

*If you would like to get a natural mix of male and female chicks, already hatched, at a discounted price, you get the Natural Mix price. Full Hatch price applies on chicks to order when you purchase the quantity of chicks you want, we set and hatch those eggs, and you get whatever proportion of female and male chicks hatch.
**Straight Run is how we sell chicks which are not sight-sexable at hatch. We cannot guarantee the sex of these chicks.
STARTED AND MATURE BIRDS
We will occasionally have started and mature birds, but not often. This is because, as a quality breeder of beautiful birds with beautiful eggs, demand for our offerings is high, and we tend to sell out of every egg and chick that we produce on the farm. The exception is the birds we hatch out for our own breeding programs. Each year, we hatch out hundreds of chicks to have large groups from which to select the best to breed forward. Once the chicks begin to mature, we regularly evaluate for characteristics we want in our breeding program. As we decide to exclude certain birds from our flocks, we will offer them for sale. These birds are, more often than not, excellent stock, however, we only select the best of the best to keep and breed. We will post notifications on our Facebook page and website when we do have started and mature birds available.
