Survived our first winter in Montana. Girls did well even when it got to -22.
I want to thank Murray McMurray for my started pullets. Got them the end of March. One was laying 2 weeks later. I wanted to make sure my granddaughter would have eggs to collect when she came to visit me for the summer. They were all laying when she came in June.

Started pullets is an expensive way to have chickens. For me it was very worth it. There was no chance of getting a cockerel. I did not have to wait for months to get eggs. I only wanted 3 pullets and most places will not ship just 3 chicks. Everything turned out well and I could not be happier with my girls.

Granddaughter named them. The Leghorn is Mayo. The Rhode Island Red is Ketchup. The Easter Egger is Nugget. Thanks again.

I too am interested in started pullets and not chicks. Going with 2 Buff Orpington's (cold hardy for WI winters) and maybe 2 Plymouth Rocks that I can put directly outside in the coop/run in April sometime. I am brand new to backyard chickens. Just got a used coop that I need to fix up a bit. How far in advance do you have to order them?
