Should I buy hens or chicks?

We always advise buying sexed birds that are vaccinated, sadly when buying chicks you are not always going to be able to get sexed chicks, so unless you are prepared for cockerels buying older sexed hens is best. Cockerel to hen ratio can be anything as high as 60-40%.

Chicks will need vaccinated at certain times for different diseases and viruses and if you are not able to do this yourself your chicks will be at risk.
