Guaranteed females unless otherwise specified in breed menu
Raising baby chicks is a wonderful learning and bonding experience for humans and chickens alike. It will take baby chicks approximately 4-5 months to reach physical maturity, and approximately 5-7 months to begin laying eggs, depending on the breed and the time of year. (All are sexed females unless otherwise noted.)
As babies, chicks are very delicate and require extra special care and supplemental heat. Keep them in a brooder, clean their space regularly, and check on them often until they are fully feathered and ready to go outside to live in a chicken coop, usually around 6 weeks old.
Baby Chicks are hatched Monday and Tuesday and listed on Thursday for sale. Chicks listed for sale may be up to two weeks old. Orders are fulfilled using the youngest chicks available. Breeds and quantities subject to availability. Most baby chicks are sexed females with a 95% success rate with the exception of crested and bantam breeds. For details, please read our Guarantee & Refunds/Exchange Policy.
