 The popular University of Alberta (U of A) Heritage Chicken program is here once again, offering small flock enthusiasts the chance to order heritage chicks until supply sells out.

“Heritage chicks are vaccinated and hatched at the U of A’s Poultry Research Centre,” says Dawn Hage, program coordinator. “This year, we’re offering Brown Leghorn, Light Sussex, Plymouth Barred Rock, Random Bred Broiler 1978, and Rhode Island Red. We hatch a certain number of each breed every year, so check the website to order your favourite breed before they are gone.”

Heritage chicks must be pre-ordered on the Heritage Chicken website and will be available for pick-up at local Peavey Marts across Alberta on specifics dates in April or May. Pricing-wise, 0-20 of the day-old chicks cost $8 each, 21-100 are $6 and 101-500 are $4.

For more information about this program go to the Heritage Chicken website or email heritagechickens@ualberta.ca.
