Chicks for mail order need to be in multiples of 25. This ensures sufficient body heat for the chicks to survive their journey. Feel free to mix and match smaller quantities of the different breeds. But, the total number of chicks ordered must equal 25, 50, 75 or 100.
Pick up at the farm for a smaller prepaid hatch is also available.
Chicks are shipped weekly on Mondays or Tuesdays. Unfortunately, we cannot provide estimates as to when your chicks will ship. All orders will be filled in the order they are received. You will be contacted via phone when your chicks ship. That will give you 24-48 hours notice. If you have any "black out" dates, indicate them in the "Notes" section during check out and we will not ship your order those weeks.
Please confirm your order via email or by phone.
Please include your name, address and phone number in the email.
If you are paying with PayPal, please confirm that your telephone number and address in your email receipt is current. If it is not current, the U.S. Post Office will not be able to call you when your chicks arrive. And, I will not be able to contact you. It won't end well for the chicks. You will get an email confirmation after you place your order. Please look at the address and phone number on your order to confirm that it is correct. Thank you!
It is up to our hens and how they are laying during that time. Orders are filled on a first come first serve basis. Ordering early will greatly increase your chances of receiving your chicks during the week requested. Day old poultry is shipped on Mondays and Tuesdays. You will receive a phone call or email confirmation when your order is shipped.

|Info: ||The Marans is a breed of chicken originating in France. It is a medium breed compared to others, popular for poultry shows and is a dual purpose fowl known both for its extremely dark eggs as well as for its very fine meat qualities.|
Marans are generally quiet and docile; but they are quite active, taking well to free ranging in rough terrain and are also tough and disease-resistant. They were originally bred in the marshy areas of France and can cope with damper conditions.
Marans lay around 150-200 dark brown eggs each year. Marans are an historically dual-purpose bird, prized not only for their dark eggs but for their table qualities as well.
