Breeds Available

We offer the widest selection of live poultry breeds in the area, including standard and rare heritage and preservation chickens, as well as geese, ducks, turkeys, guinea hens, laying hens, broilers, and bantams. Birds are two days old or less when they arrive, and they leave for their new homes within roughly a week. New breeds arrive weekly, typically on Thursdays. We require a minimum purchase of three chicks.
