ISA Brown/​​​Gold Star 

Size: 5 lbs  Egg: Brown  Cost: $6.00

From mid-February until early July, we will have day-old female chicks for sale weekly. Chick orders arrive on Thursdays from a small hatchery in Iowa. They are driven up by postal truck overnight to the Twin Cities the day they hatch. All chicks are vaccinated for Marek's Disease. Please order two weeks in advance of your desired delivery date.  We sometimes have a few extras on hand, but it is best to pre-order in advance if you want specific varieties on specific dates.  Plan for about six weeks inside under a brooder lamp before your chickens will be ready to live outside.

For pre-ordered chick pick ups please bring a small box with a lid, or we also have chick carrier boxes available to purchase for $2.00. 


We offer chicken keeping classes through-out the year and provide a chick care sheet to help get you started. Call 651-645-0818 to order chicks or with other questions. 

We carry everything you need for raising chicks and keeping backyard chickens: brooder lamps and bulbs, feed and bedding, supplements, feeders and waterers in various sizes, books, toys, treats, and even heating options for winter. See more about what we have in the store on our chicken keeping supplies product page.

Every September there's a Twin Cities Chicken Coop Tour for chicken owners to show off their coops and where fellow chicken enthusiasts or future chicken owners can chat about chickens, trade ideas and share knowledge. It's a free, self-guided tour of coops thanks to volunteers who generously open their lives and yards to share their chicken-keeping experiences.
