Update for 2023
Unfortunately the bird flu is still rampant in parts of the province and has affected breeding stock for broiler chicks and poults. At this time we can not guarantee we will have broiler chicks or poults for this season. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
It is still likely we will be able to do a delivery of Freedom Rangers and will be updating this in the coming weeks as we work things out. Please check back mid February for updates.
Nothing has changed with laying hens and we will still be doing a run of ready to lay hens near the end of April / Early May.
We are currently accepting orders for broiler chicks with deliveries starting in April 2022. All chicks come vaccinated. Do not feed medicated food. There is no minimum for orders and we have added pick-up locations is Burns Lake, Houston, Smithers, and New Hazelton!
Freedom Ranger Chicks
These birds have been developed to be pasture grown! Hardy birds, excellent foragers! The breeding stock
is imported from the regions of Burgundy and Brittany (France). The genetic stock is derived from the American and European old heritage breeds of chicken and was developed in the early 1960’s to meet the highest standards of the French "Label Rouge" Free Range program. Currently, the Freedom Ranger genetic stock is used by most non-factory farm production models (alternative) all across Europe and also by small pastured poultry producers in search of a traditionally raised farm chicken - just like the heritage healthy and with a succulent flavor and texture. Since these Freedom Rangers are a slightly slower growing hybrid than the typical white Cornish X, they are naturally better suited to the higher welfare and all true natural rearing systems (full pasturing, free range, organic, certified, backyard etc. ...). The Freedom Rangers are unsexed (males and females). Process at 9 to 11 weeks!
Limited Quantity Layer Hens Available
Layer hens are 18-19 weeks old Lohmann Brown laying hens. They will be ready to lay within 1 to 2 weeks of delivery. They produce beautiful large to extra large brown eggs and can lay up to 320 eggs a year.
On the day of delivery, we will call an hour or more prior to delivery to give you an estimated time of arrival.
Please bring a box or other appropriate container to take your chicks or turkey poults home with you. The chicks will be delivered in boxes.
Note to customers in the Bulkley Valley:
To our valued customers in the Bulkley Valley, please be advised that deliveries will often occur later in the evening, especially for customers in Smithers and New Hazelton. We try to have deliveries completed by 10PM but they may be later. Sometimes we can house the chicks overnight and have them delivered the following morning if need be.
