4 Week old Barred Rock

The Barred Rock is one of the all time popular favorites in this country. Developed in New England in the early 1800's by crossing Dominiques and Black Javas, it has spread to every part of the U.S. and is an ideal American chicken. Prolific layers of brown eggs, the hens are not discouraged by cold weather. Our strain has the narrow, clean barring so desirable in appearance. Their bodies are long, broad, and deep with bred-in strength and vitality.  Baby chicks are dark gray to black with some white patches on head and body.

When shipped, these chicks will be between 28 and 63 days old. At 28 days old, most chicks do not require supplemental heat, and so can be started out in your coop. They are vaccinated for Mareks and Coccidiosis. They have been watered with Quik Chik and given Gro Gel. They are fed with a highly nutritious feed formulated for optimum growth. Because they do not require supplemental heat, we are able to ship as few as 1 of these 4-9 week old chicks. You can mix and match any type of 4 week old chicks in your order.
