What says more fun than some Rainbow Mix Chicks! Speckles on the chicken, speckles on the eggs, a blue egg layer from a breed not known for that.... it's fun to mix it up!
This is our favorite choice. We love variety, and this is a fun way to get some new colorful layers in your backyard flock.
We're blessed to have over 20 different breeds in our Colorful Rainbow mix and we rotate our roosters regularly so you have fun mixes to enjoy! These are fun mixed breeds of the hens listed below in this flock

All the above breeds are with a Easter Egg Rooster, Green Queen Rooster and Partridge Rock Rooster.
Possible green, blue and varying colors of eggs. These are just fun breeds for us to see all the colorings, egg color variations and enjoyment from good temperament birds!
The chicks you receive will be farmers choice. Requests for specific breeds will be taken into consideration but are not guaranteed. When possible, we will send you chicks from different breeds so you have a fun color palette of chickens and eggs.
Depending on breed, possibilities:

- Straight run, day old chicks

This chick may come leg banded for easy identification. Remove leg band within 7 days.
We strive to provide a thriving and well cared for chickens to you. We provide Non-GMO feed, yogurt, raw milk, and tested regularly for healthy birds. We go the extra miles for your peace of mind!
All of our breeds are sold straight run, and customers have a 50/50 chance of receiving males or females. If you are looking for a certain number of female chicks, we'd suggest adding a few extras to your order. We do offer older ages including: juveniles, adults, laying hens, pullets or roosters if you have a specific need. The list of those breeds is found here ... We are happy to arrange a custom order as well. Please contact us.
No, we do not vaccinate our flock or baby chicks. We constantly monitor this with our poultry vet to ensure our birds are healthy and robust. We are tested yearly for disease as NPIP participants and customers can be confident that they are receiving healthy, happy chicks from our farms.
Did you know?... They don't crow till about 12 weeks at the absolute earliest, most later than that.
Couple options for roosters...
1. Use him for food for the family, maybe you have a hunter in the family that could help. Often there are families that will buy or take the rooster for meat for their family.
2. Once hes older than four months old, Pratt's Pets (Glendale location) will purchase them from you for $10 per. If they're younger than four months, the Stock Shop will accept them if they have space.
3. You could also post them in the Arizona Backyard Chicken group on Facebook to rehome him. Just have to be VERY careful with your wording. Rehome, sale and wording like that is not allowed by FB.
4. Another app called MeWe you can rehome/sell there in the Arizona Backyard Chicken group but not nearly as many people in the group.

Definitely options out there. Hope this gives you some ideas. 👍😁🍻
The locations of our farms we are generally able to provide chicks and hatching eggs year around. Our hens do get 2-3 months off per year for a break to molt, rotate and just be a chicken. This is the time of year we will see lower egg counts and our availability less.
Our recommendation and best practices: From October to March we suggest a shipping minimum of 10 chicks to ensure that chicks stay warm enough during transit. During the peak months, April -September, the recommended minimum to 6 chicks.
We gladly offer local pick up for your order. We have strict biosecurity measures for both our flocks safety. Once your order has been placed and notified your order is ready to come home, we pre-arrange a pick up time and date with you to come to our pick up drive-thru. Very simple, we have your order boxed and ready to travel home for you. You will not need to bring any boxes, cartons or crates. Local pick up orders are considered sale is final.
Why do chickens go to the beach?
To collect their EGG-shells
Thank you so much for providing excellent service and quality birds!
All are doing well thank you
Everything was AMAZING. From the communication, pickup, and the chicks. Very friendly and informative (I am a first time chicken mom) lots of helpful information. We got 4 straight run rainbow babies. 2 are Roos and they are ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS. The ladies are also soo beautiful. Lots of beautiful colored feathers coming in. They are about 12 weeks right now. So glad I found AZ CHICKENS! We will definitely be getting more soon! Highly recommend!
I did not recieve the chickens yet
I have the pleasure of working with Colwyn and Family!
Great service, quality birds, family owned, friendly folks. Could not ask for more!
Helpful and friendly and the chicks came quick, healthy, and happy! Very good experience overall!
We love the group here. Pick up was awesome with a very like minded person. If you think it’s done there you are wrong, they care! Hard to find good humans these days, but only if you aren’t looking here. Trust them with your flock, as a rookie, I had to. Now as a friend I am glad I did!
This is my second time ordering from Az chickens and definitely will continue to order in the future! They have great eggs that hatch the cutest little chicks and customer service is amazing :)
Thank you Azchicken for providing me with healthy and beautiful marans. I am happy with my two girls I got. Definitely glad they love there new home with me. Thank you again.
Made it save and healthy. To my Post Office, and they gave me a call.
Everything about AZ chickens was phenomenal! Communication, the chicks themselves. I love them!
Would like to Thank AZ Chickens for their gracious and understanding personalities. It was an inspiring experience to purchase our own American Bresse Chicken from such great people. Our one and only hatchling Ebony was kicked out of the nest about 6days old was in great dyer need of some companions. Az Chickens stepped up to the plate and we were not disappointed at all. Will do business again in the near future! Love these people!
Healthy pullets with very sweet personalities. Az Chickens was very communicative and helpful with scheduling pickups. We will definitely order from them again.
The chicks are doing great 3 weeks old and growing
I’m so happy with my chicks
