They will begin laying in 20 weeks, or toward the end of August. These are some of the calmest and most productive birds you can get, and our strain tends to have a marvelous disposition compared to other top egg layers.
We are now taking reservations for these great additions to your flock. Prices vary depending upon age and quantity. Prices start at $12 each at 6 well-feathered weeks old, and on up to $24 for fully mature chickens at 20 weeks, just beginning to lay.
Our chickens sell out quickly, sow recommend reservations ASAP. Even in their first week of age, many are already reserved!
Our chickens are fully vaccinated and healthy. We guarantee that our chickens are as advertized: true to sex and breed, and healthy at the point of purchase.
Need a large volume of chickens raised for you? We can do that too. Just get in touch to let us know your needs.
On another note: at the farm store we have new goodies! Kernel Bob's Kettle Korn (made in Monmouth Maine), Halladays delicious dip mixes and no-bake cheesecake mixes, an assortment of the best local and regional artisan cheeses including Black Ledge Blue Cheese from Cato Corner Farm. This is the best blue cheese I have ever eaten; Black Ledge is rich, earthy and full-flavored, without the harsh acrid finish or hollow metallic tones of the supermarket fare. Come try some great cheese!
We also carry Over The Dam Jam jams and peanut butters. Wow! Sue really knows how to use simple, natural ingredients to make fruit flavors pop and peanuts sing!
Or come for some real local maple from Merrifield Farm. Or some surprisingly on-target goat's milk fudge, in four flavors!
See you at the farm!
