Nothing tastes better than something you have grown yourself. This special is created especially for those of you who have specific needs regarding the number of eggs and meat you wish to have. In this assortment for every 25 chicks ordered, you will receive 15 beautiful meat birds and 10 assorted females which will lay brown or white eggs. We will ship our broadbreasted Cornish X Rocks or Cornish Roasters for your meat birds (these could be all males - all females - or some of both) and the ten hens for laying will be from our Rainbow and Brown Egg Layer chicks. The meat birds will make nice fryers in 7 to 10 weeks and the hens will start giving you eggs in 18-20 weeks. For those of you who want a few eggs each day and some great tasting home grown chicken - order 25 or 50. For the more serious chicken fancier who either wants to make a little money on the side or endear themselves to the relatives or neighbors, try 75 or 100.
As a reminder, to help ensure a safe arrival to you, the minimum number of chicks for each order prior to April 1st is 25. On and after April 1st, the minimum number of chicks required is 15. You can mix and match any type of baby chick in your order to reach the applicable chick minimum order. If ordering any bantams, we require a minimum of 15 bantams per order.

Customer Product Reviews
Overall, we're very happy with our birds. The roasters turned out very plump and VERY tasty. The layers have yet to lay eggs - we expect some in 2-4 weeks. My only negative comment is that we were sold the layers as 10 hens. Imagine our surprise when not one, but two (20%) turned out to be roosters! :(
This was a nice combo for us. 15 very nice Cornish X Rocks and 10 good laying hens. There was a nice variety of hens all with different colored eggs. The eggs are on the small side but still overall good hardy layers.
