We are able to ship as little as 5 chicks because they are a bit older and have more feathers for warmth than day olds. If you will be ordering more than 15 chicks please add this charge instead."Shipping 16-25"

We find that birds do best with the Chick Rehab Mix available to them for 24-48 hours after shipping. You can purchase that Here. Heat packs are recommended during cold weather months.

We will only ship if the weather conditions are right. You will be notified prior to shipping to answer any questions and help you get prepared for your incoming birds. A tracking number will be provided to you as soon as we get one.
We offer a live arrival guarantee and will ship extra birds if we can. If your losses are greater than what you originally purchased they will either be refunded or re-shipped as soon as we can get them to you.
Please note that whenever possible we recycle our shipping boxes. We ensure that they are in mint shape and sanitize them. This not only helps the environment but also keeps our costs as low as possible.
