Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value for Your Money - 10 Healthy Chicks! I was a little leery of purchasing baby chicks through the mail, but in the end everything was great. We received our 10 baby chicks from the post office the day it was promised - a text and email was sent stating when the chicks were shipped and the day to expect them. They were all huddled closely together in the box. We placed them in the new tote and everything has gone very well since. As I write this we've had the chicks for about 3 weeks and all 10 are doing great. Growing well, active and very interactive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lively chicks I wasn’t sure about buying chicks online, and especially knowing how far away they were coming from. However, the chicks arrived alive and well. They are almost 2 weeks old now. They love running and flapping their little wings. They’re growing quite nicely.

How do you get an unsexed chicken?

Asked by: twinkieboy
That terminology refers to the fact thechicks are not sexed as to male and female so the package will include females and males when they arrive. If you prefer males or females you have that as a choice as well

How long does it take for Golden Comets to mature enough to harvest them for meat, should we decide to hatch some eggs and use them as a dual purpose chicken? 

Asked by: Blookie
Generally a Golden Comet will be mature around 18 weeks to the point the meat will be of good condition to eat

Thanks for the note. Chicks are shipped to warm weather states all year long so you should not have issues at all. Rainbows and Rhode Island Red chicks are especially thrivent in warm weather conditions
