The Rhode Island Red 4 week old female chicken grows up to be a fabulous egg layer even through the winter months. The glossy mahogany colored hens with black tail feathers are as beautiful as they are gentle and productive.
These chicks have been vaccinated for Coccidiosis and Mareks and are fed started/grower crumbles. We suggest you continue with this feed until they begin to lay at 18-20 weeks. At 6 weeks old, they are mostly feathered out so they won't require a heat lamp as long as they are kept dry and out of the wind. Mailed USPS Priority Express, we do not guarantee overnight delivery, but do guarantee live arrival and 48 hour survivability.
