Before You Order
We normally ship started pullets throughout the continental United States (49 states). However, until the weather cools, we will not be shipping. We will only have chickens available for local pick-up.
We cannot reserve chickens, even if the breed that you want is not currently available. If you want to buy chickens from us, you will need to place an order through our website for one or more of the breeds that we list as being available.
If you choose local pick-up from our farm near Waco, Texas, we will contact you by email with local pickup instructions. For local orders, the pick-up day is the same as the ship day.
Regardless of the shipping date or pick-up date, your credit card will be charged when you place your order because we do not have a way to delay payments.
Green egg layers developed by Dr. Tom Whiting.
Several years ago, McMurray Hatchery acquired the “Whiting True Green,” which we raise up to be our green egg layers. This is a line of chickens developed by Dr. Tom Whiting to lay green eggs.
The green egg layers were derived from Red Sex link stock (ISA-Browns). As such, they are good egg layers. The parent stock of our bird’s parents lay over 300 eggs a year.
They can resemble an ISA-Brown, or there is a second, brown plumage pattern. Occasionally there will be some that are a lighter color, but in general they look similar to the birds we have pictured here.
The ones pictured are 14 weeks old. Notice that they already have a well-developed comb.
The eggs are the first eggs from young pullets. I showed them with some white eggs for comparison.
We get day old’s from McMurray and raise them up for sale as started pullets so you can add a green egg to your basket.
