We have set minimum orders according to NYS AG & Markets 26A. We do our best to make the process easy to understand, and we ask you to review them before you place an order to avoid delays. If you have any questions give us a text, email, or find us on facebook.

There is NO FLEXIBILITY to these minimums! We are NOT Shipping any live day old chicks or birds at this time. 4/5/2020. 

ALL LIVE DAY OLD CHICKS OR STARTED BIRDS MUST BE PICKED UP AT OUR FARM. 

Our website is setup for pick-up orders only, although we ship our Fertile Hatching Eggs. In comments upon check out you can specify you wish to have your order shipped to your billing address or otherwise provide alternate. Shipping costs are calculated based on quantity ordered and zip-code.



NYS Article 26A AG & Markets states that WE MUST SELL BY LAW a total of 6 birds.


If they are under 8 weeks of age per order. If birds being purchased are over 8 weeks, there is no minimum and you may purchase as few as 1, although we recommend 2-3 for companionship. 

Our policy is that if your purchasing day-old chicks as a prebook order for a future hatch date, you must order at least 5 of each breed desired. 

You may purchase 5 females and 1 male of that breed to make that required 6 or purchase 6 of one breed. We will not accept a prebook order of anything less than 5 per breed.



HOW THE PROCESS WORKS:

Our busy chick season runs from February to September of each year. 


We plan a hatch weekly every Thursday and Friday. Those are what we call "prebook" order chicks. 

You can order Day Old Chicks and prebook them for a future hatch date. Typically orders book out 2-3 weeks in advance. 


April/Easter Orders:  availability 2 weeks before and after Easter is always extremely limited or sold out. Prebooks for the month of April should be placed in January and February of each year.


You must order at least 5 of each breed for a total of 6 or more birds per order. You can order multiple breeds such as 5 Barred Rocks, 5 Black Australorps and 5 Silver Laced Wyandottes. If females are ordered of a particular breed you may purchase 1 or more male but you do not have to purchase 5 males unless females are not ordered. 


THE ONLY alternative to our Day Old Chick, 5 minimum per breed is to order your desired quantity of birds (6 or more) and elect for Hatchery Choice .You will be given a completely random assortment of breeds hatched that day. No record of the assortment will be kept other than the amount invoice and purchased.


If you are purchasing something started from whats left over from a previous hatch date. We call them our "over-hatches". You CAN assortment them in any breed to meet the 6 minimum AG & Markets Law. If the birds purchased are over 8 weeks of age then there again is no 6 minimum requirement. You cannot reserve birds from our "over-hatches". They are first come first serve from day old up to point of lay.


Our goal is to sell out future prebooked hatch dates prior to the anticipated hatch date. That way we do not have an abundance of left over chicks without homes. 

We do raise several extras to sell to customers who do not want to do the whole chick thing or would just like to add a few more to their existing flock. 

We will do our best to accommodate last minute orders but please do your best to try to plan a schedule of hatching with us so we can count for consistent availability. 



BREED MINIMUMS:


MEAT BIRDS: 

You must order 25 or more per order. 


FERTILE HATCHING EGGS:

We sell our hatching eggs by the dozen. You can order them online and pick them up in store or you can order them online for shipping as well but in the comment section of check out, please state you would like them shipped to your billing address or provide an alternate address. Otherwise the order will be assumed for pick up in store. Shipping costs are not calculated as it varies based on how many dozen ordered (weight of eggs) and where they are going. Its cheaper to pick them up if that is a possibility.
