Frequently Asked Questions
Do you ship hatching eggs and/or chicks?
Yes. We ship both. We charge a flat rate of $15.00 for Priority Mail shipping and handling (2 to 3 day delivery in most instances) on our hatching eggs and $50.00 for Express Mail shipping and handling (1 to 2 day delivery in most instances) for our chicks.
Do you vaccinate?
Yes. Like most hatcheries, we vaccinate for Marek's and do so for all of our customers without any additional cost.
Do you ever sell older birds?
Yes, if available. Please check the For Sale Page or contact us directly for availability and for further information on shipping charges, etc.
Are your Chocolate Orpingtons bantams?
No. They are Large Fowl and come directly from the UK lines.
Do you guarantee your hatching eggs?
Due to the unpredictable nature of hatching eggs, we cannot guarantee them. Please understand that your hatching eggs will be given the same care that we provide to our own. We will send the freshest eggs available and pack them securely. We cannot be held responsible though for your hatch due to the possibility of rough handling, x-rays, temperature fluctuations, incubator settings, etc.
Do you guarantee your chicks?
Yes, we do offer a guarantee on chicks that are to be shipped to you. If for any reason any of the chicks in your order do not survive the trip, we do require that you obtain an Affidavit from the Post Office and notify us within twenty-four (24) hours of receipt. If extra chicks of the same breed have been provided, we may offset the amount owed in consideration of those extras provided. If less than ½ of your chick order is lost, we will issue a reimbursement only of the chicks lost. If more than ½ of your chick order is lost, we will provide the option to you of either reimbursement or a new shipment of chicks. Shipping and handling charges are nonrefundable.
Do you have an order minimum?
If you are willing to pick up your chicks at our location, there are no minimum requirements. If shipping is required, we do require a 5 chick minimum to insure a safe trip. There are no minimum orders on hatching eggs.
Do you ship outside the country?
No, we do not. We only ship to the Continental 48 United States.
