hatched and shipped in March, April & May. Many customers
place their orders several months in advance to avoid
- Chicks are sold as Straight Run (not sexed) only. The
quantity should add up to either 25 or 50 chicks on the Order
Form. A minimum of 25 chicks per box is required to have enough
chicks together to provide the warmth needed to keep them safe in the
mail. The single compartment (25 count) shipping boxes are
designed for 25 large fowl chicks. If you order 50 chicks a 50 count box with two
compartments will be used.
- 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 you can’t accept
your order the year it was sent in for, you may move it to the following
year. If your order can’t be filled by the end of our hatching
season you will have the option of having your order placed on the next
year’s list or given a full refund.

- The total
number of chicks per order may be a combination of any of the

- 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 our 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.
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. Chicks are usually shipped on Tuesday
afternoons and the post office will call you to pick up your chicks as
soon as they arrive. Please provide two phone numbers on the Order
Form, so the post office will have a backup number to contact you.

- 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. Likewise, I no longer accept orders from Canada due to the
extra time needed to deal with required import papers.
- If enough
chicks don’t hatch of a breed and variety that you order, chicks of
other varieties of equal or greater value will be substituted (up to
20%) to fill your order. Please feel free to indicate some of your
other choices under the “Comments” section of the Order Form.
Refunds will be made or replacement chicks sent for any chicks
substituted (over 20%) at the price per chick. Refunds will be sent
after the hatching season is over.

This is not the same as an assortment. One or more varieties may
be included of the varieties I breed whether they are listed as
available on the Order Form or not. Hatchery choice orders are
generally much easier to fill than orders for specific varieties and may
get filled sooner than many other orders.

round out an order for 10 or 15 of a specific variety to get to the
minimum of 25 chicks per order.

Assortment or Hatchery Choice orders, but may be included in Surplus
