The 4 Week old White Leghorn female chicken is an all white bird that is known for its excellent egg laying qualities. Hens lay about 290 eggs every year while eating less feed than most other breeds. 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.
