HENS/PULLETS- we receive numerous phone calls and emails daily from people looking for hens or pullets. We almost never have hens or pullets for sale! When we do, we advertise them on the Golden Gaits Facebook page first and they usually sell within minutes. If you are looking for hens, please check our facebook page before you call us! Thank you! We always have plenty of roosters for sale, and unsexed chicks spring/summer. Our facebook page ALWAYS lists what we have available and is updated as birds sell.

Sorry, we do not take a waiting list or pre-sell chicks. We do not ship live birds. We are NPIP and can ship hatching eggs on chickens when they are available. We do not ship turkey or peafowl eggs.
We enjoy raising a variety of exotic chickens, Heritage turkeys, ducks, and Peafowl. We rarely have adults in any of these breeds for sale, but we hatch eggs and sell chicks/poults in season. Our facebook page is the best source to see what we have available. Older chicks are priced differently according to age, breed and sex. Occasionally we offer hatching eggs for sale, when our incubators are full! All chicks are sold straight run unless otherwise specified.
This gentle, broody, soft and sweet bantam breed is popular! We have a mixed color flock this year that contains black, white, buff, buff partridge, blue, blue partridge, red, and black/white cuckoo. Some of these are barred/cuckoo. Silkies are very difficult to sex until they are several months old.
The 'top hat' breed that makes everyone smile! Polish are excellent layers of medium sized white eggs.The adult males have spiky crests and the hens have rounded flower-like crests. Our Polish are in mixed color pens of smooth and frizzled. We have TOLBUNT!!! Also white crested black, white crested blue, buff laced, splash, blue, black, barred, crele, white, brown, and lemon blue.
A delightful bantam breed that is gentle, perky and broody.They have fantastic feathered legs, and round bodies. We have mixed colored pens that contain lemon blue (rare!), calico, blue, splash, buff, birchen, black, brown/black and white. This breed is easier to sex early on (by 4-6 weeks of age, usually). We have frizzled and smooth Bantam Cochins.
BUFF AND BUFF CUCKOO
A well-loved, big round breed in buff, lemon, and buff and lemon cuckoo colors. Great layers of large light brown eggs.
AMERACAUNA/EASTER EGGER/OLIVE EGGER
Our 'egg laying pen' has mixed color Ameracauna, Marans, White Leghorn, Welsummer, Wyandotte, Cream Legbar Cross hens in with pure Ameracauna roosters. We get gorgeous eggs in shades of green, aqua, olive, pink and blue out of the chicks from this pen! $6 each unsexed chick. We can not guarantee what color eggs your chicks will lay (if they are hens). Starting in 2023 we will have frizzled Easter Eggers!
BLUE LACED RED WYANDOTTE
We have blue, splash and dark colors in this lovely breed. These are nice birds, and good layers of medium brown eggs.
These stunning all-black birds are relatively new to our country. They are melanistic, meaning they are black inside and out. They lay small cream colored eggs (despite the rumor their eggs are black!) and are hardy, gorgeous gamey birds! Not too long ago, you could buy 1 Ayam Cemani hacthing eggs on ebay for $165!
In our experience, Heritage turkeys are the same breed in different colors. We have not seen a difference in disposition, size, fertility, color/size of eggs or taste of meat in our birds. We get lots of questions about raising turkeys. Our two main tips are that turkeys need more protein than chickens, and they need to be dewormed with a good broad spectrum dewormer like fenbendazole ('Safeguard' or 'Panacur') every few months. This helps keep Blackhead from affecting them.
Turkeys have wonderful curious personalities! We love to mix up our turkey colors. We are proud that we have some colors that you just can't buy anywhere else!
< ROYAL PALM- A stunning white bird with black lacing.We will have Royal Palm, Pencilled Palm, Blue Palm and Red Palm poults this year. They all come from the same breeding pen, and chicks are white at birth, so we can not differentiate the patterns/colors when poults are young!
BLUE SLATE > Various shades of blue and lavender. Our flock will produce blue slate, black, red slate and blue palm.
Peacocks are proof that there is a God and He wants us to be happy! There are few things as beautiful as a peacock in the sunshine! There is usually a free range peafowl or two on the farm. We have three pea-pens this year that include India Blue, Purple, Black Shoulder IB, Bronze, Cameo, Spalding Black Shoulder, Silver Pied and Oaten. Peas usually lay eggs May through July, so we expect our first peachicks to hatch late June every year. We do not take prepayments or a waiting list.
Our ducks free range and mingle around our 6 acre pond. We have Muscovy in blue, black, brown, silver and pied . This year we will also have some mixed breed ducklings hatching. All of our ducklings are $9 each and are sold straight run starting at 1 day of age. We usually have ducklings hatching from March through July or later.
