Raising chicks over winter is probably the most cost-effective way to replenish your poultry breeding stock. Keeping the correct temperatures, feed, and housing are relatively simple. Be ready for spring without feeding adult birds your family's grocery budget!
We have chicks available now for professionals that are ready to replace this year’s birds or try something new.
Our Spitzhauben come in a variety of colours. This is the perfect bird for those of you with a small farm close to the city with a backyard hens market.
We did extremely well this year due to the fact people aren't interested anymore in the common production red or sex link chicken. They still want the bird to utilize the feed properly and lay tons of clean eggs like our Spitzhaubens. But, what they really want is variety and colour, the little fluffy Mohawk option is just a bonus. Rarely the Spitzhauben are found in colours other than silver. We offer the best selection of colours anywhere!
Thanks for dropping by. I'm Matthew Nelson, farmer of Grade Eh Farms. I post on where my love and passion for life intersect with family, farming, food, & chicken for the soul.
