New Year's Pullet Sale
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
It's the season for starting fresh and our hatchery is having a pullet sale to reduce the number of extra pullets we have in inventory headed into the New Year. We will be offering started pullets between 9 weeks and 30 weeks old that are off heat, acclimated to Maryland's climate and ready to move into their new coops. These are all guaranteed females that can be expected to lay their first eggs by Spring 2024. They make for a great opportunity to get a head start on egg production as soon as the days lengthen.
THE SALE WILL BEGIN AT 12:00AM ON JANUARY 1, 2024.
Our Sale pullets will go live on the website for ordering on January 1st at 12:00am. We will NOT accept any pre-orders for these sale pullets before then.
Orders may only be placed on our website. We will NOT be accepting in person sales nor sales over the phone.
We will be offering options for pick up and shipping. Birds for pick up will be required to select a pick up day and time before checking out. Please make note of your date selection before checking out. Pick ups will be scheduled from January 2nd through January 13th only. Shipped orders will ship out on January 9th.
Order Fulfillment/Shipping Procedures
Sale Pullet orders for pick up will be required to select a date and time for pick up prior to completing the ordering process. Available pick up dates will range from Tuesday, January 2nd through Saturday, January 13th. We typically offer pick up times between 10am and 6pm Monday through Friday and 10am to 3pm on the weekends.
Please be sure to write your pick up date and time down before completing check out. We will box your birds up for you prior to your pick up arrival. No need to bring any carrier or transport crate for them. Please be on time for your scheduled pick up or call/text/email us if you're running late. We are a working farm and cannot wait around for late arrivals and don't want the birds in boxes longer than they need to be. We appreciate your cooperation and punctuality.
Shipping of started pullets is expensive. Sale pullets for mail order will ship out on Tuesday, January 9th. They will ship via USPS Priority Mail Express and in USPS approved live shipping boxes. The USPS approved shipping boxes are designed to hold less than 10lbs of weight with plenty of filtered airflow to protect your birds in transit. Shipping cost is calculated at check out based on the quantity of birds being purchased and the distance in which they will travel. Shipping costs are calculated directly through the USPS and can not be manipulated. The started pullets will be sent with grogel (electrolytes in gel form) for hydration and typically arrive within 48 hours after shipping. Customers will be provided with tracking information via email as soon as we return from the post office from shipping the birds.
Our sale pullets are guaranteed female. All sale pullets will be at least 9 weeks old when they are ready for their new homes. If a late blooming male is mistakenly received by a customer, we will refund that bird upon photographic proof. We cannot, under any circumstances, take miss-identified birds back due to the biosecurity risk they would pose on our farm.
There is no minimum requirement to purchase our sale started pullets, but we strongly suggest purchasing two or more at a time. Integrating a single bird into an existing flock can be very stressful for that bird. If at all possible, integrating two or more at a time is ideal so that they are not singled out and picked on by the existing flock.
All sale pullets have been vaccinated for Marek's Disease and come from flocks that are tested routinely for Mycoplasmas and Avian Influenza. We will not have any started pullets that are not vaccinated for Marek's Disease.
