Before accepting chicks, please prepare your brooder with litter, food, water, and a heat source.

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. At Big Dog Farm, they are fed organic feed.

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.

We will reserve for larger quantities but cannot discount.

It's been a mild winter so far, so perhaps you are thinking about getting some chicks to start your backyard flock of egglayers. We will have them from late March through April. Get your brooder ready.

We will have pullets available at the beginning of May—adolescent hens, ready to live in an unheated chicken coop.
