Chicks are listed as either:

Most of what we will have arriving weekly will be Pullets (Females) unless otherwise noted. To order, simply call, stop by the store, or text us what you would like to order. (Breed, Number of Chicks, Male, Female, ect ect) We will then let you know the soonest date we will have your desired number of & breeds of chicks available.
