From February – June 1st 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. Don’t want to purchase 10 chicks? Select the “free male chick” option in our farm store to bring your order up to 10 chicks. You will not be able to checkout of our farm store unless there are 10 chicks in your cart. In the notes section of checkout let us know you do not want the male chicks.
