It’s hard to think about baby chicks with our frigid temperatures right now, but it’s the time of year to plan the order for the Spring. Last year we got about 40 day olds from Performance Poultry and are planning about the same this year. Ameraucanas (green egg layers), Silver and Golden Laced Wyandottes, Mottled Houdans, Lakenvelder are all on my list!
Performance Poultry is located in eastern Ontario and the only hatchery in the area that specializes in heritage breeds so ordering early for Spring is always advised. We have a link to the Performance Poultry 2015 price list for anyone interested. If anyone in the area wants a few birds for May 1st but can’t make it out there, we can add to our order and have them picked up at our farm, just let me know as soon as possible. It’s a nice day trip to Prince Edward County for Emma and I and we don’t mind bringing back a few extras!
