Every month earlier in the year (before April 1st) that
you start chicks makes every hen in your Hock worth
about 20c more in fall eggs ... February starting would
double that figure and bring in around 40f more from
each pullet in the flock. That's $10 more per 100 pullets!
That's a tidy premium for starting chicks early, isn't it?
Why don't you drop in or telephone your chick order now.
