Central Coat Feather Fanciers will hold its annual fund-raiser pullet sale March 24, starting at 9 am in the Templeton Feed parking lot. Find a map linked on the site.
Three-month-old Ameraucana, Barred Rock, Black Australorp, New Hampshire Red, and Blue Laced Red Wyandotte, shown here, pullets will be available. What a great selection! $15 each.
CCFF members will also bring their own chickens to the sale, so other ages and breeds will be available, including bantams.
If you just can't wait, call Larry Stallings, CCFF president, at (805) 237-7987. He'll sell you some before the sale.
At three months old, these girls will be laying within a month or two. Unless you are eager for spending time with chicks, this is the way to go. The birds are young enough to be settled down as companion birds and will give years of lovely eggs.
