Breed Information

The Back 40 broiler is a cousin to the Freedom Ranger and has the same growth rate, body confirmation, and personality. They are feature bloodlines from the Barred Rock and Sussex breeds and are specifically bred to excel in backyard flocks and free range applications. 80% of the Back 40 broilers will be Barred while 20% will be a mix of silver and red. Uniquely marked broiler chickens at a great price that excel in your Back 40? Perfect!

Hatching weekly on Tuesdays.

Super affordable broiler with good growth weight and feed conversion designed for backyard flocks and free range applications. Back 40 broilers will weigh 5-6 lbs at 9-11 weeks old with 2.5 lbs of feed use per one lbs of weight gain. These hardy broilers excel in a huge variety of temperature conditions from cold to heat. Cooling measures should be applied if temperatures routinely reach 95 degrees or higher. Barred patterned feathers make these birds a delight to look at! These broilers won’t all be barred, however. They will be a variation in coloring. They require 2-3 cubic feed per bird and do well in confinement. Where they really shine, however, is in free range and pastured environments. Perfect for the small homesteader or self sufficient family farm!

How This Works

Pick the hatch date, whether you want vaccinations or not (not available on every breed), then add the chicks to your cart. Checkout using PayPal or any major credit card. We have a minimum order of 15 chicks from April 1 - October 31 and 25 chicks from November 1 to March 31. We put more chicks in a box during colder weather to keep them warm during shipping.

Once the order is complete we receive your order and schedule it for your preferred hatch date. If we can’t fit it in our schedule for whatever reason on the date you selected, we’ll let you know.

Once the order has shipped we will mark your order complete and attach the tracking # to your order. You should get an email with confirming the order is complete.

The chicks typically take 1 - 2 days after they have hatched to reach your local post office. The post office should call you when the chicks arrive.

Wait for the call from your local post office. Typically USPS will ship the chicks to the post office associated with your zip code but occasionally they may require you to pick the chicks up at a main hub - especially if the delivery is running behind schedule.

Pick up your chicks at your local post office.

Let us know if you have any issues with your order within 48 hours after the arrival of your chicks.
