Poultry Buyer’s and Seller’s Guide for Backyard Poultry
Always keep your $ invoices for chicken purchases. Some cities may require a permit and/or proof of purchase of vaccinated chickens. ( Longueuil, Sherbrooke, Les Cèdres, Prévost, Blainville, Mascouche, Drummondville, etc.). ) If your hens come from a Coop, feed mill, farm store or hatchery, they will normally have been vaccinated. Always ask to be sure.
I always recommend a minimum of three (3) hens! The hens must establish a rank, a complex social structure and feel safe. Too many families have lost a hen during their first summers. It is cruel to let a hen live alone for too long. It is difficult to integrate new chickens in the summer due to the lack of availability. A quarantine has to be done.
