California VND Regional Quarantine for ZIP CODES 90000-93599
Please be aware that effective immediately, the USPS no longer accepts the shipment of birds, hatching eggs, or embryonated eggs into or out of zip codes 90000-93599. This is due to the Virulent Newcastle Disease (VND) Regional Quarantine in the state of California.
Moyer's Chicks WILL NOT fulfill orders of chicks and eggs shipped to the zip codes under the quarantine.
Moyer’s brown egg layer is a hybrid cross between a White Rock egg-layer type female and a Rhode Island Red male. Sustained production with months over 90% is normal. This layer produces up to 300 eggs by 72 weeks of age on 3 pounds of feed per dozen eggs produced. The mature layer weighs 4.5 pounds and is very docile and durable during cold winter months. This breed is the ideal layer for small family farms as well as large commercial operations.
Our brown egg layer is available as day-old chicks, ready-to-lay pullets, or fertile eggs.
