I’m no longer accepting orders for chicks.

  • Orders are only accepted from members of the Ameraucana Alliance.
  • There is no catalog, just this website.  To place an order print the Order Form and fill-in the information requested.  Send the Order Form, with your payment to the address printed near the bottom of it.  Shipping is included in the prices listed.  Money Orders and personal checks are accepted – no PayPal or credit/debit cards. 
  • Order early for a very limited number of hatches.  Chicks are hatched and shipped in March & April.  Many customers place their orders several months in advance to avoid disappointment. 
  • Chicks are sold as Straight Run (not sexed) only.  Chicks are only sold in lots of 25 and the quantity must add up to 25 chicks on the Order Form. 
  • A 25% fee will be charged to all cancelled orders, so please don’t place an order for chicks unless you are sure you want them.  If I can’t fill your order by the end of my hatching season you receive a refund.   
  • I do NOT vaccinate chicks for Marek’s Disease.  FYI…vaccinated chicks are NOT “carriers”, so yes you can safely mix vaccinated and unvaccinated birds.
  • Orders are filled on a first come basis…but seldom are two orders identical, so some are filled before others depending on what breeds/varieties are ordered, the region in the country they are being shipped to and other factors.
  • Once your order is received an email will be sent to acknowledge receipt, so please include your email address on the Order Form.  Incubation is not an exact science and customers should be ready to receive their chicks when enough hatch to fill their order sometime between my first and last hatch of the season.  Please have your brooder ready to plug in.  An email will be sent letting you know your chicks are in the mail once they are on the way. 
  • Your chicks will be shipped to the post office you want to pick them up at – not your home.  This does not have to be your local post office and driving a little further, to a larger post office, may get your chicks home sooner and healthier.  I ship chicks on Tuesday afternoons and the post office should call you to pick up your chicks as soon as they arrive there.  Please provide two phone numbers on the Order Form, so the post office will have a backup number to contact you.
  • Most chicks arrive in good condition, but early chick mortality is always a possibility. 
  • Shipping is by Priority Mail or Priority Mail Express thru the US Postal Service.  Claims for refunds with the USPS will be filed by Fowl Stuff, since I am paying the postage.   
  • By law chicks can be sent to most Zip codes in the US only.  No orders will be accepted for Hawaii due to that state’s requirement of a special permit.
  • I no longer accept orders from Canada due to the extra time needed to deal with required import papers. 
  • Hatchery Choice” means I choose the variety or varieties.  This is not necessarily the same as an assortment.  One or more varieties may be included of the varieties I breed depending on what hatches that day. 
  • Hatchery Surprise” chicks could be any chicks that I hatch.  These are the surplus or left over chicks after all the other orders have been filled. 
  • “Don’t count your chicks before they hatch” literally means guarantees cannot be made.  Decades of selective breeding are behind most of the breeds and varieties offered, but unwanted characteristics may show up.
  • Fowl Stuff reserves the discretionary right to refuse any order.
  • Shipment is based on the ability and willingness of the US post office to accept day-old chicks.
  • Prices, conditions & varieties offered are subject to change without notice. 
  • Please read the FAQ page for more information, before placing an order.
  • Please post your general questions about poultry on one of the many poultry forums.  Some are listed on the Links page.
