Golden Comets – Available Now!

Golden Comet Hen for sale

Golden Comet Hen

Golden Comets are a Rhode Island Red/Leghorn cross. Because they are a hybrid, they typically lay 7 jumbo brown eggs a week in their peak production period. They also have a very kind and gentle temperament.

The birds we sell come from NPIP certified flocks. At 16 weeks of age they are blood tested for major poultry diseases. This will give you the peace of mind that you are adding clean birds to your flock.

20 Weeks old - $16 each
