DAY OLD CHICKS
We are taking prepaid orders for chicks to hatch in the spring.
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.
***Day old Ameraucana chicks are $15/chick.
All chicks sell as straight run.
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.
Ameraucana Hatching eggs --- None available for the 2017 season.
IMPORTANT: We do not, under any circumstance, guarantee that your eggs will hatch! Many factors beyond our control may contribute to incubation success or failure.
PLEASE NOTE: Hatching eggs are shipped as soon as they are available. We will let you know when our hens are able to fill your order and when they will be shipped. Certain breeds are in high demand and may be sold out for weeks or perhaps months. Please be patient and know that every effort is being made to fill your order just as quickly as possible.
|Info: ||The Ameraucana is a breed of chicken thought to have been developed in the United States, though it is not clear exactly where they were developed (the Ameraucana Standard chicken is often classified under "All Other" as place of origin). The name is a portmanteau term of American and Araucana (a related breed). Ameraucanas come in both a large and bantam variety. Eight colors are officially recognized for poultry shows by the American Poultry Association: Black, Blue, Blue Wheaten, Brown Red, Buff, Silver, Wheaten and White. There are several project colors, including Lavender.|
Ameraucanas are similar to Araucana chickens because both have pea combs and lay blue shelled eggs, but they are completely different breeds. Ameraucana traits include full tails, muffs, beards, and slate or black legs depending on the variety. Bantam cocks weigh 30 ounces and bantam hens weigh 26 ounces while large fowl cocks weigh 6½ pounds and large fowl hens weigh 5½ pounds. Ameraucanas are typiclly well mannered, also making good pets for children.
