While we all love having chicks around, sometimes it’s nice to just skip the brooder and get those delicious eggs faster. Meyer Hatchery is pleased to offer you our Hatchery Choice Production Started Pullets. Pullets included will be from our high production layer breeds including Golden Buff, White Leghorn, Black Australorp, Buff Orpington, Rhode Island Red, and the homestead staple and Karen Meyer's personal favorite, the Barred Plymouth Rock. Once laying begins, a well cared for healthy hen will likely lay 5+ eggs weekly. Our Hatchery Choice Production Started Pullet does not guarantee a variety of chicken breeds but we do aim to include 2 or more breeds.
Started pullets are available for either pick up or can be shipped. If picking up, don’t forget to bring a box or crate to transport your new pullets home on your assigned pick-up day. Started Pullets are shipped USPS Priority Mail Express in an approved shipping container and includes prepared gro-gel to keep your birds hydrated while in transit.
12-week-old Started Pullets have a modified vaccination schedule (Bursal, Salmonella, Laryngotracheitis, Fowl Fox, Encephalomyelitis), are NOT beak trimmed, are floor raised, and are treated for intestinal worms.
Due to conditions beyond our control: such as feed quality, environment, or lighting, we are unable to guarantee the production rate and/or start of production of these birds.
