No purchase of pullets is required to attend the workshop. There are no charges for the Poultry Day presentations or lunch; however, reservations are required by using the online form below. Forms may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Reservations may also be made by contacting Kevin Snell at 785-532-1281.
KSU students will also be holding their annual pullet sale on June 29, 2019.
Egg-type pullets raised by the students may be picked up from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., June 29 at the Stanley Stout Center. KSU students have raised these pullets for spring class projects and they will be ready-to-lay (16-17 weeks old) and fully vaccinated.
Our brown birds are great yard birds, tame and friendly but will lay more brown shelled eggs. They are a hybrid type that will look similar to a New Hampshire Red. We also have a white feathered, white egg shell type hybrid, a bit smaller and less friendly, but will produce the most eggs possible on the least amount of feed.
We will have a limited supply on a first-come, first-sold basis. A description of the bird types and prices can be found on the order form below. Questions about the pullet sale can be emailed to email@example.com or call the KSU Poultry and Gamebird Research Farm at 785-539-5041.

All pullets will only be released June 29. It is very important that all transport cages and trailers be completely clean to be biosecure. The birds must be transported in pens that provide for the welfare of the birds. For more information about transporting your new pullets, refer to "Safe Transport of Poultry and Gamebirds in Kansas"
