CHICKS - Place your orders now for 2014 chicks! we are already filling up on some breeds for spring orders!

Chicks are available starting in March of each year - subject as always to the hens and their desires to provide potential acceptable progeny in a timely manner, and of course dependent upon weather conditions on both ends of their route.

We ship chicks that are 1 to 4 weeks old, as we have found they handle the rigors inflicted by the shipping process from our rural area much better than day-olds, especially for the sensitive rare breeds. This age also allows 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 box!

Shipments of chicks of this age will be 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 so that you can easily discern which breed is which. If ordering one breed, chicks will be marked that are from different breeding groups.

Minimum order is 8 chicks. You may mix breeds to reach this number.

We ship chicks March through November, weather permitting!

We have many late-hatch chicks growing out over the winter, and several groups that will be at point of lay by March/April 2014. We are posting this selection of juveniles at this time, but they will not ship unless the temperatures are reasonable at both ends of their route. More will be listed as we continue sorting through the grow-out pens. First come first served!

Important notes about our hatching eggs:
We will do our best, with the cooperation of the hens, to include additional eggs when available.
Hatching out eggs that have been shipped is a gamble! If you are not willing to take the risk, please do not purchase! Rough handling of the boxes can occur at any point in shipment, damaging air sacs, breaking eggs, and in some cases destroying entire shipments. We are not to be held responsible for those sorts of damages and cannot replace eggs damaged in this manner. We can only guarantee that each egg is carefully marked, carefully wrapped, carefully packaged, and shipped as promptly as possible after collection. We do not ship old eggs, and we do not ship pullet eggs. Eggs are gathered daily and marked while still standing in each and every breeding pen. There is no danger of any of our roosters or hens "hopping a fence" or any such calamity, as each breeding group is in their own individual 6 foot tall pen that includes a wire mesh top over each and every pen. Our birds are far too valuable to practice "free ranging", so no surprises there, either. We do not sell randomly mixed breeds, and you will find no mixed breeds in our hatching eggs. Bear in mind before you order that the ranch sits at 5000 ft. above sea level - if you live at a much lower elevation the eggs may be negatively affected, affecting your hatch rate.

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, 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.

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 container will be included in your 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!
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 watered prior to going into their travel container, as all birds receive special feeding the week before they are shipped, including extra vitamins, electrolytes, and extra protein.

We reserve the right to refuse any sale. We reserve the right to change the price of eggs, chicks, and/or 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/eggs 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!
