Now is the time to place your order for 2017 chicks & juveniles!!!


CHICKS

Get your order in soon to reserve your place in the 2017 reservation book! More breeds are close to selling out!

Chicks are available starting in March and ending in October of each year - subject as always to the hens and roosters and their desires to provide 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 are Straight Run Only, that means 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/breeding pen is which. If ordering one breed, chicks will be marked that are from different breeding groups/lines. Every chick leaves here with bands - so please don't just remove them when they arrive with no way of marking them! Many customers have done just that, and have regretted never knowing which birds are related/not related to which!

Minimum order is 8 chicks

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 or Canada), 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. Also please pay attention to any Avian Influenza outbreaks in 2017, as local/state regulations when those occur can affect your shipment.

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!

Please contact us prior to making any PayPal payment!


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/varieties we send to you.

Contact Waltz's Ark Ranch to directly place your orders or ask questions HERE (but please read the Sales Terms and How To Order pages first to see if your questions are already answered there!): admin@naturalark.com

We answer every email we receive! Emails are answered daily, excluding weekends and holidays. We do live rurally, so sometimes our internet connections are not the best, and not all emails reach us and sometimes not all emails actually go out, despite our best efforts and spending too much money on methods to "improve" our connections. If you haven't received an answer, PLEASE check your Spam/Junk folders to see if it is there, usually that's where it lands for most customers that overly manage their inboxes. If not there, then please do re-send your information!!!


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!
