From February – June 1st if you are needing your chicks shipped we have a 10 chick minimum to ensure that the chicks will arrive safely to you. After June 1st the minimum drops to 6 chicks; there are no chick order minimums if picking up from the farm. If your shipping box does not have 10 chicks ordered, we will supplement with free male chicks to get you up to the correct number so your chicks arrive safely.
