Item Information

Barred Rocks are as beautiful and productive as they are easy to care for. In 1620 a travel-weary band of Pilgrims set foot on Plymouth Rock. Years later an ideal backyard chicken breed was named in honor of this famous site. They link the flock owner with American history while yielding abundant eggs and tasty meat. In bygone days when nearly every farm had a chicken flock, the utility and beauty of these birds made them the breed of choice. Few birds are as stunningly regal as a Plymouth Rock strolling across a summer lawn. with a New England heritage, they don't let January's blizzards interrupt laying. Calm and docile birds, they make a great addition to the backyard flock. Both cold and heat tolerant, they also do well in confinement and are great foragers.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Try and buy at the store instead The chickens are great, but packaging could have been better. The heat pack packaged with the chicks was cold before they arrived. This was a packaging problem, not a shipping issue. There was no way that the chicks would have stayed warm enough at all with only one heat pack for a 2 day journey. We were using a plate brooder and it did not seem warm enough for them, especially having been so cold. We made an emergency lamp purchase to get them warm quickly. Three chicks died within 24 hours of arrival, as they were already in shock.

So if I buy the unsexed product will there be more females since the males are not as favored

Asked by: Chick favorour
Unsexed are just that. They have never been sexed and are taken directly from hatch baskets to the boxes. There is no way of telling the ration of males to females. In general most breeds will produce close to the 50/50 ratio

How do the chicks stay warm when shipping

Asked by: Chick favorour
Chicks stay warm in general because they generate heat from their bodies of 100 degrees or more. In extreme weather conditions boxes can be modified to close some of the holes as well as use of insulation on the bottom of the boxes, double padding or heat packs. These tools help the babies stay warmer

Asked by: Bev52965
Thanks for the questions. At this time, the only option is to buy hens only, Males only or a combination that is not sexed at all. Sexing rates are guaranteed at 99%.
