Now taking orders for laying hens
Golden Comets are a sex-link variety of chickens. This means that their sex can be immediately determined based on their color. The females are redish, almost like a red sex-link, and the males are white. These pullets are rather quiet and mature earlier than most other varieties. They lay brown eggs and are very cold-hardy birds. Given the range of climate during winter in Winchester, we felt most comfortable offering a cold-hardy chicken that doesn't require a very insulated coop.
To order, email us - firstname.lastname@example.org - with the quantity you'd like and we'll give you further details for payment. Receipts are emailed or mailed once payment is received.
$10 per bird. Right now we're only offering pullets but if we have enough requests for cockerels, we can order them as well. Let us know if you're interested in a rooster or two.
The chickens will be ready for you the weekend of June 9 as long as the weather cooperates. If it's extremely cold when we order the chicks, we might have to wait a bit for it to warm up so we can minimize the chances of the chicks getting chilled.
