We are based in Pompton Plains, New Jersey.

​We regret we cannot reserve chickens or accept pre-orders. Chicks are sold on a first-come, first-served basis.

Before receiving chicks, please prepare your brooder with litter, food, water, and (if needed) 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.

Please note: To maintain biosecurity, once a chicken 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, we would be happy to provide a replacement hen.

E-mail is usually the best way to reach us:

Pullets for sale   

We sell chicks, pullets, and laying hens. (Pullets are adolescent hens.)  Please note the hatch date to determine their age. We recommend against mixing ages. All of our chicks are vaccinated against Marek's disease and Coccidiosis. They are raised on organic feed. Our chicks are sexed when hatched, so the chance of getting a rooster by mistake is small but it does occur.

* All prices include delivery to your home. *

Due to insurance requirements, we can no longer allow visitors to the farm.

​We do not ship.
