Is there a way for me to see if these are in stock before I go to the store? I want to make sure they are there before driving there and then finding out there isn't any.

Does the Golden Comet chickens make good setters?

Asked by: Gary59
Golden Comets are generally good setters. Not at the level of a Buff Orpington but they are good egg layers as well

I'm interested in 3 Female Golden Comet Pullets. Is this number acceptable? How much are they and would they be able to be join my other hens in their coop without heat lamp?

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
