Our Six Pack Specials are perfect for city families that have ordinates that limit the quantity of female chickens and do not allow roosters. Whether your specific flock goal is a high production of eggs, gorgeous color of eggs, friendly pets, small bantam breeds, or a mix of gorgeous feather colors and funky fun unique birds, we have you covered. The six pack is a collection of birds in which you select what maters most to you and we use our expertise to hand select the chicks meeting your goal based on what breeds happen to be available at the time of order fulfillment.
