Very healthy and active birds. Each of the breeds listed should lay an average of 5 eggs a week. Perfect for the backyard or the farm.
Our goal is to provide you with healthy quality poultry. Here at Margaret’s Roost we raise high production egg layers in small flocks at a time to be sure they get the attention they need to grow as healthy as possible. Our chickens are raised on high-grade feeds and Rooster Booster vitamins, not just thrown the cheapest feed until they are old enough to sell. They are raised in tractors moved over fresh grass often throughout the week.

We are not people with “extra birds”. The fowl raised at Margaret’s Roost was bred and raised to live and thrive on your farm or in your yard.
Tired of buying “hens” and waiting on eggs, then one day you hear your “hen” crowing? Yep, now what will you do with “another” rooster? That’s because in order to accurately determine the sex of a chick it must be done by an expert, not a breeder or farmer. Our experts look at hundreds upon hundreds of chicks daily. All of our chickens and are sexed at 90%-95% accurate from the day they are hatched.

Laying Hens- We have found the “magic age” for a chicken to find it’s new home is between 5-7 weeks old. These are not babies. They are feathered out enough for a coop. We have done all the hard work for you. All you need is a clean/dry place for them to sleep, food, and water. Typically they start laying around 16-24 weeks old so you only need to wait about 11 weeks before you start looking for eggs.
Why don’t we sale laying hens? At 5-7 weeks old these chickens are young enough to learn you as their care taker, learn their home before they start to lay, and it is the most efficient as far as price. We have found that it simply stresses the birds out too much to be moved from a place once they start to lay. We have seen them stop laying for 3 days up to several months. The age we sell our birds is perfect for them to learn their surroundings before they lay.
