Chick Days

Meat Birds

White Rock Meat - White in colour. The fastest growing broiler and bred for meat only. White Rocks can be butchered at a range of weights but are typically grown for 8-12 weeks. With the correct care, White Rocks will achieve excellent results.

Bonnie's Heavy Red (broiler) - Considered a broiler type, this breed is slower growing than the White Rock, more resilient and less prone to leg and heart problems. Well suited to free ranging, Bonnie's Heavy Reds are predominantly red, with a slight degree of variance in feather colour and pattern. Finished weights are dependant upon the type of feed used, feeding program, length of growing period and over-all management of the birds. Allow 12 or more weeks to finish.

 

Laying hens

White Leghorn - This small white hen is capable of laying 90% or better with an excellent feed conversion. Their eggs are white and have an excellent eggshell quality.

I.S.A. Brown Hybrid - Our most popular layer breed. Brown in color, the pullets of this breed are excellent brown egg producers. Genetically bred for laying ability on a low feed consumption, this breed will lay approximately 92% during peak production, with good quality eggs of exceptional size. The hens will reach approximately 4 lbs with the rooster weighing approximately 5-6 lbs at maturity.

 ** The ISA Browns are available at 19 weeks of age - trimmed and fully vaccinated. **

Meat birds

Dual purpose breeds (eggs & meat)

Rhode Island Red x Columbian Rock - the female is red in colour, weighing approximately 4.5 lbs at maturity. The male is mostly white with black and brown wing and tail feathers. He will grow to approximately 6.5 lbs.

Black Sex Link - pullets are black with red under feathers, reaching a weight of 5.75 lbs. Males have a barred pattern of grey and white, similar to the Barred Rocks.

Plymouth Barred Rock - An outstanding dual purpose bird. The females and males are similar in colour with grey and white bars. Females will reach 4-5 lbs while the male will reach up to 6 lbs or better. These birds are very beautiful.

 

Ducks

Muscovy Ducks - White in color. The drake is twice the size as the female, reaching 10-11 lbs at 17-18 weeks. This bird has more breast meat, smaller bones and has less fat than other ducks. These ducks eat less than Pekins and are excellent fly catchers.

Turkeys

Large white turkeys - These turkeys will achieve exceptional size. The hens will grow to a dressed weight of 16-20 lbs in 15-20 weeks. It is possible to have a 35-42 lb male with a few additional weeks of feed. Turkeys are available as non-sexed ONLY.

Be sure to pick up your chicks promptly. For bio security reasons, we do not house them overnight.

Do not transport the chicks in your trunk or in the back of your truck.

Be sure to have a dry, clean area, free of drafts with a heat lamp set up and ready for their arrival.
