*We regret we cannot reserve chickens or accept pre-orders. Chicks are sold on a first-come, first-served basis.
Before picking up chicks, please prepare your brooder with litter, food, water, and (if needed) a heat source. If you pick up your chicks, then go on a shopping spree, your chicks will become dehydrated and stressed.
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, supplemented with calcium.
Please note: To maintain biosecurity, once a chicken leaves the farm it cannot return. That includes roosters.
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.
Roosters are available and are offered free.
Please note our farm is a residence, not open to the public.
We are in Pompton Plains, New Jersey.
Please call to make appointment: 973-835-3149.
Sorry, we do not ship.
