Our chicks consist of Marans, Ameraucana, Crested Cream Legbars, and Olive Eggers and are sold at 3-4 days old and are available for pick up only. We breed our chickens for beautiful egg color, so you will have a variety of color in your basket, but we also only sell chicks with docile temperament. Our roosters will protect their ladies and eat out of your hand all in the same day. If their temperament doesn’t meet our standards that chick will not be sold. Unlike feed stores and hatcheries who sell their culls, we work very hard to send only the best of our breeds out into the world. We do not cull any of our chicks, instead, we leave them in the incubator for 24-48 hours after hatch so that we can watch them closely and observe their personalities and vigor before we offer them for sale. It is amazing how much you can learn about a chicken’s personality in those first few hours of life. Only those who meet our standards will be offered for sale.
When you get chicks from Wild Child Farms you can be sure your chicks will be healthy, strong, and have a personality that we think is pretty amazing. Our chicks are never medicated or vaccinated as we believe that a healthy lifestyle is the best medicine. We are a small backyard farm, so we only hatch around 15-20 chicks at a time. Because of this, there can be up to a 3 week waiting period. But our chicks are totally worth the wait! Our chicks are $10 each and are available from February – October.
