Nurture Your Flock from Day One
Investing in day-old baby chicks allows you to foster a bond with your poultry flock from their earliest days of life. When you choose to raise your own baby chickens, you’re not just creating a small backyard flock for fresh eggs; you’re also cultivating companionship with these birds.
Many of our customers consider their hens and roosters more than just poultry; they’re pets, part of the family. Raising chickens from chicks allows you to connect with them on a deeper level, much like a mother hen would with her brood.
Understanding the Implications of an “Unsexed” Order
When choosing your chicks, you might notice the term “unsexed” in the breed descriptions, such as the splash standard Cochin chicks or buff-laced Polish breed of chicks. Unsexed simply means the chicks are not separated or specifically chosen based on their gender. Many chicken breeds do not show clear signs of their sex until a few weeks after birth, making it difficult to determine the ratio of hens to roosters in your new flock.
As your chicks mature, you might find that your unsexed flock consists of a mix of roosters and hens. At around five weeks old, baby chicks start to develop distinguishing features. By the time they’re ready to leave the brooder at six weeks old, you’ll likely need to manage your flock accordingly, usually maintaining a ratio of one rooster for every ten hens.
