Please kindly note that we cannot guarantee any orders until we receive confirmation from Frey's Hatchery. Orders that cannot be fulfilled by Frey's orders will be refunded.
All Ready-to-Lay are beak treated at day old to help prevent picking and egg breakage. Beak treatment still allows the hens to “scratch” feed or range. Pullets will have been on 12 hours of light per day when you receive them. Increase ½ to 1 hour per week (in the morning) until you reach 16 hours of light per day. Total hours of light per day and proper nutrition (no scratch or “green scraps”) will bring the pullets into lay. Greens and scratch may be given at a later age, however, if birds have access to these feed sources we recommend a vitamin supplement in the water to prevent a nutritional deficiency. As well, if you plan to allow your pullets access to the outdoors, consider putting a “wormer” medication in the water (1 or 2 application days – available from your feed supplier).
New and used crates are available for purchase.
WE DO NOT RENT OR LEND CRATES.
Green crates are an exclusive colour to Frey’s Hatchery and are NOT SOLD under any circumstances. Frey’s Hatchery cannot allow any of our crates to be used for any other purpose than our Ready-to-Lay deliveries.
Proper Handling Procedures to Prevent Contamination:
Please be aware that all poultry, even chicks, are livestock and should be treated as such. Proper handling procedures will reduce or eliminate the chance of bacterial contamination. A human hand can have hundreds of species and millions of individual bacteria on it, as can poultry.
Wash your hands with soap and water after handling poultry or any equipment that comes in contact with poultry.
