We are based in Pompton Plains, New Jersey, and deliver chicks, pullets and hens to customers in Morris County.


Big Dog Farm chicks are vaccinated and should be fed non-medicated starter/grower feed until 18-20 weeks old. Then they should receive adult layer feed, ideally supplemented with calcium.


We will have pullets in May. Pullets are fully feathered and do not require supplemental heat. They are sexed.


We do not have hatching eggs. We do not ship.


Please note: To maintain biosecurity, once a bird leaves the farm it cannot return. That includes roosters. If a hen we sold you turns out to be a rooster, or if it falls ill within a short time period, we can provide a replacement hen, if available.

Pullets available in May 2020

Whiting True Blue and Whiting True Green can be pre-ordered. The True Blues lay eggs tinted blue, while the True Greens lay eggs tinted green. Though they are distinctly different breeds, both are excellent producers of medium to large eggs. They are like white-egg layers in temperament: nervous and skittish. They are a great choice for producing colorful cartons of eggs. The other breeds are available while supplies last.

Big Dog Farm is suspending the sale and delivery of chicks to follow federal and New Jersey guidelines regarding COVID-19.


We hope to begin the sale and delivery of pullets to our customers May 4. (Pullets are young hens.)
