Sad Scientist Farm is a small hatchery located near Taylors Falls, Minnesota. We specialize in autosexing breeds and sex-linked hybrids that lay beautiful eggs. We are NPIP certified and ship hatching eggs and day-old chicks across the United States.
When you purchase day-old pullets from us, they come with a money-back guarantee. Autosexing and sex-linkage allow us to sex chicks with 100% accuracy, but we are human and could accidentally put the wrong chick in the wrong box. If that happens, just let us know and we'll send you a refund for the incorrectly sexed chick.
We vaccinate chicks for Marek's disease at no extra charge. There is a lot of misinformation out there about Marek's disease vaccination, but the long and short of it is this:
If birds are vaccinated for Marek's disease and later come into contact with the virus, they can still carry and spread the disease, but they will be protected from the symptoms of the virus. Vaccinated birds DO NOT shed the virus simply because they are vaccinated. They only shed the virus if they are exposed to the virus in their environment, just as any unvaccinated flock mates will.
We work really hard to provide backyard chicken keepers with strong, healthy birds that lay beautiful eggs. Welcome to Sad Scientist Farm!
