Pullets are sourced from only a small handful of trustworthy, NPIP approved hatcheries and hand-raised from one day of age in our growing facilities, where they are given the best quality of feed available and allowed to roam freely outdoors over 3/4 acre of pasture. All of our pullets are GUARANTEED FEMALE. (Select cockerels are also available for those who want a rooster.) All of our stock is vaccinated for Marek's Disease.
8-11 weeks: $16.00-$18.00 (common breeds)
12-16 weeks: $20.00-$22.00 (common breeds) ***16+ weeks: $22.00-$25.00+ (common breeds)
8-11 weeks: $20.00-$40.00 (rare breeds)
12-16 weeks: $25.00 and up (rare breeds)
We take reservations for pullets starting 3-5 weeks prior to the arrival of a batch, and close them 1 week before arrival. Reservation fee is $3 extra per bird, and reservations require a minimum 50% deposit to hold birds. To reserve please visit us in-store. If you live more than an hour away, you may reserve over phone by calling (530) 363-5981. Reserved birds are typically brought from the growing barn to the shop 1-2 days before the actual arrival date of the batch, and can be picked up at this time. If you have reserved any birds, you will get a phone call letting you know when they are here. For most of our common breeds, reservation is usually unnecessary. However, if you are interested in a breed marked rare or limited, reservations are recommended.
Please note that if you have not returned our phone calls or picked up your birds 10 days after they become available for pick-up, we reserve the right to resell them, regardless of payment status.
Reservations currently OPEN for: BATCH ONLY - RESERVATIONS CLOSE !
***We rarely have 16+ week old birds in stock, and in our peak months of March-August we typically only have 8-11 week old birds available.

Meet Our Team
James "Jay" LeRoy - Owner-Operator
Jay opened his doors for business in 2012, but has had a lifelong passion for poultry and has now raised chickens and other species for over 40 years. This passion originated when he joined 4-H as a child and raised poultry for show. He takes a practical approach to poultry husbandry, but gives each of his birds the utmost individual attention (especially his breeding stock) and treats them with care and kindness. In addition to putting all the work into raising our sale stock, he breeds Seramas and LeRoy Orpingtons for pets and exhibition.
Nikki Kimbrough - Employee
Nikki has worked with the business nearly from the beginning, before a storefront was even acquired. She now helps out one or two days a week at the storefront, but mainly assists us in tending and cleaning our growing barns and chick facilities, where all of our birds get a happy and healthy start. Her two children make great "socializers" for our young birds as well, and whenever she is cleaning our barns they can be found handling and holding our young stock.
Susan LeRoy - Phone Lines and Bookkeeping
Susan is Jay's mother and has helped run the business since it was founded. She is invaluable to us and helps out with running the phones, keeping our books, and making sure everyone stays in line. Though she does not have any birds at the moment, she has raised poultry since her childhood and it was her encouragement which allowed Jay to discover his passion
