Chicks and Chickens

Hi Ladies,
I have 50 more laying chickens ($8.00 each) that will also be delivered on the 28th in the afternoon. If you are interested, e-mail me back to reserve the numbers that you are interested. If your name is on the list below, I have already reserved some for you and you have committed to buy them.

I also have 50 chicks coming on the 26th. They are America’s/Aruacanas and they will lay blue and green eggs. More info is below if you are interested. They are beautiful little chickies! (We had our chicks for 3 months before moving them into a coop. We kept them in a box in the garage under a lamp until they were old enough to go outside at the end of May. So if you want chicks, but don’t have a coop yet, know that it is still do-able.)

Info on the Chicks: $4.50 each.

The “Easter Egg Chicken”, This unusual breed gets its name from the Indian tribe of Chile where they were first discovered. Araucanas lay beautiful colored eggs of blue-green shades from turquoise to deep olive.

These natural Easter Eggs will amaze your friends and make a great “show and tell” project for school. 

Adults are of medium size with pea combs and our breeding stock is selected for their ability to produce colored eggs. They exhibit a wonderful combination of colors and color patterns and 10 or 20 of these birds make an absolutely beautiful laying flock that is extremely hardy and will be the talk of the town. Baby chicks come in all colors, plain and fancy, just like the adults. This is a unique breed and great fun to have when the colored eggs start coming. Our Araucanas/American’s are recommended for egg laying color and ability.

Thank you,

  1. Hi Wendi,
    It the cost depends on how big and elaborate or how simple you do it. You can spend from $100 to $1500 pretty easy. Wood is getting to be expensive, but if your husband can build it for you, then you can get by on the lower end. I have seen chickens in old dog houses with a nesting box inside, as well as cute elaborate buildings. At Thanksgiving Point, they have a 3 sided lean-to, with a roosting stick. You can spend as much or as little as you want.
    Good Luck,
    April 🙂
