FAQs

Here are some of the commonly asked questions we receive about our services

  • Do day-old chicks require much care?
    Yes, your chicks will need to be kept at a temperature of 35°C for the first week. Day old chicks are unable to generate warmth, so it is vitally important to keep chicks warm DAY AND NIGHT. Please see the fact sheet for more information.
  • Are the chicks vaccinated?
    Our chicks are vaccinated against Marek’s Disease.
  • Do you have anything older than day old chicks?
    Unfortunately we are only able to supply day old (newly-hatched) layer chicks. For point of lay pullets, please contact:
