CHICKS

Get your reservations for 2016 made soon!

Chicks are available starting in March and ending in October of each year - subject as always to the hens and their desires to provide potential acceptable progeny in a timely manner, the cooperation of the weather, and of course dependent upon weather conditions on both ends of their route. We do not ship when it is too cold or too hot.

Waltz's Ark Ranch DOES NOT ship day-old chicks!

We ship chicks that are 1 to 3 weeks old, depending upon breed, as we have found they handle the rigors inflicted by the shipping process from our rural area much better than day-olds, especially the sensitive rare breeds. This age also enables us to sort out any weak and/or obviously inferior chicks prior to shipment to better assist the survival rate and of course increase your satisfaction (for example, you will NOT receive clean-legged Marans chicks from us, nor crooked toes or deformed beaks on any chick! All Sultans will have 5 toes on each foot!) Weak chicks never go into a shipping box!

Shipments of chicks of this age are Straight Run Only, no sorting and no guessing as to what sex they may be. If ordering a variety of breeds/varieties, each chick will be marked with colored rubber leg bands (see bottom of page for how to get your own!) so that you can easily discern which breed is which. If ordering one breed, chicks will be marked that are from different breeding groups/lines.

Minimum order is 8 chicks

If you landed on this page from somewhere else other than this site, you can click on the name of each breed/variety for information about each.

SHIPPING INFORMATION

PLEASE CHECK YOUR STATE AND LOCAL LIVE BIRD SHIPPING REGULATIONS BEFORE YOU PLACE AN ORDER! We ship only to the contiguous 48 states (not to Alaska or Hawaii), and only to those states/locations that allow/accept live bird shipments, and do not require testing beyond the standard NPIP tests. We will NOT be held responsible for chicks/birds that are undeliverable due to your state and/or local post office regulations. The recent Avian Influenza outbreak due to migratory birds in some areas have closed certain states/counties for a period of time to be determined on their time schedule. If you are in one of those areas, you need to contact your State Veterinarian for guidance on their schedule of closure times, if they exist. We will do our best to set/rearrange chick orders to accommodate thos time frames if at all possible. We will do our best to hold juveniles until your area is safe for shipping, if necessary.

Size of bird(s) and quantity will determine the size of bio-secure shipping container that will be required for your purchase, and the cost of that Approved Legal container will be included on your final invoice. The weight of your order along with your zip code determines the shipping costs via USPS - we have no control over their shipping rates! Lately these rates have been changing literally weekly, for reasons known only to them, so please expect variations in shipping costs, even if you order birds at different times.
All birds are shipped with a snack geared to the age of the birds and the distance they must travel. They are very well fed and pampered prior to going into their travel container, as all birds receive special feeding the week before they are shipped, including extra vitamins, electrolytes, extra proteins and fresh nutritious treats. They go into their shipping containers with a full crop, a happy heart, and health galore!


Waltz's Ark is a participant in the NPIP Program - CO-#130

We reserve the right to refuse any sale. We reserve the right to change the price of chicks and/or juvenile/adult birds through the year (although any confirmed reservation will be filled honoring the price at the time of the reservation) as circumstances warrant (ie the continued increases in feed and electric costs!). We reserve the right to limit the number of chicks/birds per order as necessary to preserve the quality of the rare breeds we send to you.

Have you been searching for an easy way to mark your chicks as they hatch? Zip ties are a pain to put on wee freshly hatched chicks, to say the least! We found someone selling a product that has solved our issues with baby identification - rubber leg bands that come in several sizes and 6 bright colors. What a life saver! We switch to colored zip ties when the chicks outgrow the largest rubber band size. Please Contact Sheryl Allred for more information at sallred2@yahoo.com - Happy Hatching!
