If that is more chicks then you were planning on ordering, we can pad your order with free male chicks to keep your ordered chicks warm and safe for their journey.

Shipping for chicks is express flat rate of $55 for up to 75 chicken chicks. If wanting to place an order for 30 chicks and above send us an email for our wholesale pricing.

Farm pickups of chicks are always free and there are no minimum numbers of chicks needed though we do recommend at least 2 so you do not have a lonely chick.

Fertile Chicken Eggs are offered from July-October each year, shipping is a flat rate of $25 for up to 2dz chicken eggs. Farm pickups are free.

We ship orders out every Tuesday morning and offer farm pickups for locals on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Saturday each week by appointment. When selecting farm pickup you will be able to book a pickup day and time for your chicks.

We have a great FAQ page as well as beginning chicken keeping tips page to answer any of your questions, we look forward to seeing you and helping your flocks grow in 2022!
