During peak season, we have people standing by to answer phone calls, but during the slow season (September-January), we do not. If you call and we do not answer, please leave us a voicemail and we will call you back as soon as we can. Even during peak season, we may not always be able to answer the phone right away.
If you do not see the hatch date that you wanted to order from, it is most likely sold out. Please select one of the available hatch dates. You may also call us to see if we can place a special order for you, for a hatch date that is not listed on the website.
Your chicks will arrive within 1 to 3 days after they are shipped. All chicks ship on the hatch date. Some locations will receive chicks overnight, while others may require a full 3 days. If you have questions about shipping time to your location, please call us.
Yes it is! We have a very good working relationship with USPS, thus it is very safe to have your chicks shipped. We rarely run into shipment issues, but if one does occur, please take a picture of the box, with the chicks in it at your post office, and have a postal employee witness it. Please send us the picture and we will file a claim with USPS. We will also work with USPS to determine what was the cause of the issue. We will always follow up with you and make things right, if an issue does occur.

Yes we do! Weather can certainly pose issues throughout the year, fortunately, we are well prepared. We have summer boxes, as well as winter boxes. We determine the proper box to use for your order, by recording the high and low temperature of your location, for the expected arrival date, on the fulfillment label on your chick box, and then selecting the appropriate box. For extremely cold locations, we can also utilize specialized insulating pads, and heat packs.
Typically we put 25 chicks in a 25 ct. box, 50 chicks in a 50 ct. box, and 100 chicks in a 100 ct. box. However depending upon the weather, and the quantity of chicks that you order, this may vary. In very warm weather, we will usually put a maximum of 15 chicks in a 25 ct. box, 30 chicks in a 50 ct. box, and 80 chicks in a 100 ct. box.
That depends. If you are placing a single order (for only one hatch date) payment will be processed immediately. If you are placing orders for multiple hatch dates (usually to qualify for special bulk pricing), payment will be processed the day before, or the day of hatch. You will only pay per hatch date. Orders will not be shipped without payment.
If we attempt to process payment, and the payment declines, we will contact you immediately. If you placed a single order and payment declines, we will attempt to contact you. We will not place your order until payment processes successfully.
If you placed orders for multiple hatch dates and payment declines, we will contact you immediately. If payment is not able to be processed successfully by 12:00 PM (PT) on the hatch date, your order will not be shipped, unless you call us and make arrangements for payment. Please call us immediately if you have reason to believe that a payment might decline.

For Cornish Cross, we ship 4% extra in each order. For all other varieties we usually will include 1 or 2 extra chicks per box. If we run short on a hatch, we will withold extra chicks to avoid shorting customers.
Please call us. We take customer satisfaction very seriously. If you receive anything other than what you ordered, please call us immediately. On your fulfillment label, on the side of each box, should be an initial belonging to the person responsible for the correct fulfillment of your order. Please let us know what the initial on your label is, we will make sure to make things right.
Yes, they usually do. If you plan to raise your chicks on conventional feed, use a 21% protein chick starter, crumble. Feed this for 10 days, leaving feed out all the time. After 10 days, transition to a lower protein "broiler grower" ration. Take care to restrict feeding. Typically it is suggested to leave feed out for 12 hours, then take it away for 12 hours. This will help to slow the growth rate for Cornish Cross.
