We will begin taking pre-orders for our Spring 2021 hatch season on November 1st. Spring orders will be filled on Tuesdays each week from February 23rd through June 15th 2021.
For chick mail orders, there is a 10 chick minimum order. You can mix and match the different breeds as long as the total number of chicks is 10 or greater and is a multiple of 10 (10, 20, 30, 40, etc.).
Please refer to our breed pages for information on each of the breeds we offer: Ameraucana, Copper Marans, Delaware, Olive Egger and Welsummer.
All of our chicks are vaccinated against Marek's Disease to ensure they get off to a good start in life. If you do NOT want your chicks vaccinated, please make note of that in the comment section before finalizing your purchase. We are happy to separate your chicks upon hatch so they are not vaccinated.
All chicks are sold straight run, unless you've specifically chosen our Welsummer Pullet chicks. Statistically, you should get approximately 50% females and 50% males. The larger your order, the closer you will get to this 50/50 split. Much like flipping a coin, you have a 50/50 chance of getting heads or tails, but if you flip a coin 6 times, you may or may not get heads 3 of those times . . .
During the check out process you may specify in the "Notes" section which color variety of Marans or Ameraucana you prefer. We will try our best to meet those preferences.
We hatch our chicks on Tuesdays. As soon as your chick order is filled and delivered to the post office for shipping, you will receive an order update via email or text (whichever you select at check out) with your tracking information and expected delivery date.
PLEASE NOTE: All chick orders receive FREE USPS STANDARD PRIORITY MAIL SHIPPING. This is a 1-3 day shipping method. Selecting the FREE shipping option at checkout waives our LIVE ARRIVAL GUARANTEE. Because we cannot control how the post office will handle the chicks after they leave our possession, we void our guarantee when the option for a faster, safer shipping method is available. Therefore, only orders that select PRIORITY EXPRESS shipping will receive our LIVE ARRIVAL GUARANTEE.
