We are looking forward to the promise of all that spring brings to rural Ontario — Brighter and longer days, warm sunshine on our face, green beginning to emerge from the soil, bringing life back to our farm, yard and gardens once again.
Crop and pasture planning is in the minds of many and we are all anxious to get back on the land and in our yards and gardens. Ask us for help with planning your cereal, forage, pasture and hay seed needs and request recommendations for your farm from our in-house experts.
Speak with Harold to discuss your fertilizer requirements for the coming planting, growing and haying season.
Chick Days will begin in mid-April — See our 2020 Order Forms & Price Lists (see below and on our ‘Poultry’ page tab) to order your backyard poultry flock.
BACKYARD POULTRY FLOCK ORDERS
April 6, 2020 — UPDATES AFFECTING BACKYARD POULTRY ORDERS:
We recommend placing all orders early this year as demand is increasing due to current conditions, hatching percentages are coming in lower and slower than normal plus the added pressure of tight supply for commercial barns.
There is an unprecedented demand for backyard poultry orders being placed with us this year. The hatchery we work with is hoping to maintain their hatch dates for day-old meat chicks to the best of their ability.
Pickup dates for *turkeys poults are now pushed to May; *Ducklings (other than Pekins) and *goslings are pushed to June 11 pickup date at this time. *Guinea keets are also in huge demand. *Pickup dates are subject to change without notice.
We will continue to provide hatchery updates here and take orders until we hear any differently from the hatchery or the Province but the date you wish might be later than anticipated — Your patience and understanding through all this is much appreciated.
For ready-to-lay chickens, we are working on a waiting list right now for any orders coming in now with late June being the available next pickup date — Supply is limited and we have closed off our orders for RTL’s for April pickup, moving several orders ahead to late June due to limited supply.
Wright’s Feeds ‘N Needs offers Day-Old Meat Chicks and Layer Chicks as well as Turkey Poults, Ducklings, Goslings, Pheasants, Call Ducklings and Guinea Keets which are available to order.
Order pick-up dates at our store are scheduled from April through late summer/fall, depending on the breed’s laying season.
