Chicks:

I ship chicks will ship Express Mail on Monday-Wednesday with a heat pack, and organic feed and organic fruit.  All chicks are shipped straight run (undetermined sex) unless otherwise indicated. As available, I will generally include at least 1 extra chick if I can. I reserve the right to include extra chicks of the breed of my choice if I deem it necessary for the health of the chicks due to weather conditions. I will never knowingly include cockerels in your order as extra chicks.

There is a live guarantee for chicks upon arrival when delivered within two days of shipping.  Open your order in the presence of the postal officer delivering.  If chicks are dead upon arrival, take a photo in the presence of the postal officer.  Photos are required for refunds.  For any losses upon arrival or within 48 hours of arrival (assuming proper brooder management), refunds or store credit will be given at my discretion based on availability of chicks. We can work together.  I want you to be happy!

 If replacements are to be issued, it is the buyer’s responsibility to pay for shipping and purchase additional chicks to reach a minimum of 6.
