All our hens are between 5-8 months old and just reaching their laying age. Hens can lay for up to 4-5 years before they stop all together. Hens need up to 14 hours of sunlight to lay. Artificial lighting can be added to keep hens laying through the winter months when the sunlight is less. Fun fact - hens are born with an exact number of eggs she will lay in her life time, so even if she stops laying through the winter months, that just means she will be laying that much longer before she stops.
If you’re looking for a chicken with style and pizzazz, Polish Chickens are for you. Some will have beards, some will not, and they will all have an unusual v-comb.
Not only will you have the coolest chicken in the neighborhood, but these lovely ladies will also supply you with a good number of small to medium white eggs every year. They are also a quiet breed. Be careful when free ranging though because that crest of feathers can limit their vision, so they are not as good as other breeds at seeing predators.
Average mature weight: roosters 6 lbs., hen 4 1/2 lbs.
