We are currently letting our hens take a break from laying and are gearing up for the 2018 season. No hatching eggs or chicks are available of any of our breeds until February 1st 2018. We are currently accepting pre-orders through our online store and orders will be filled as they came in when February rolls around. If you would like a later shipping date than February we are happy to work around your brooding/incubation schedule.
We have gift certificates available in the farm store if you would like to give a flock to a loved one for christmas.
We currently do have quail eggs available for both eating and hatching.
We ship all orders of hatching eggs and chicks Tuesday mornings. There are no minimums for shipped eggs, the shipping/handling cost is a flat $20 for up to 2dz eggs anywhere in the US.
For shipped chicks we have a minimum of 10 to guarantee live arrival. If 10 chicks is more than you wanted to order we can pad your order with free male cream legbars or one larger chick (about 2 weeks older than the rest that can still be safely brooded with your fresh hatchlings) so that all chicks have a safe journey from us to you. Shipping for chicks is a flat rate of $45 for express and all the comforts to give them a safe journey.
Our farm is not open to the public due to needing to maintain good biosecurity for the health of our flocks and our NPIP certification. We are however open for egg and chick pickup appointments if you are local and would like to pick your new flock members up. The easiest way to get the process started is to make an order through our online store on this website. You can either prepay for your eggs/chicks at that time through paypal or select “check payment” and pay with cash or check made out to Alchemist Farm when you come for your pickup appointment. Pickup appointment days are Wednesdays from 10-1 and Saturdays from 10-5pm. We offer pickup appointment time slots in 15 minute increments and will email/call you to schedule once we receive your order.
