Minimum Order Requirements

We are not shipping to Alaska or Hawaii!


*We Ship Chicks on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays*

For safe handling and delivery of your birds, The Chick Hatchery has minimum order requirements.

These minimums help the birds stay warm and prevent them from shifting around during shipping.

Due to our new paperless inventory system, once an order is placed you will not be able to make any partial cancels, however you will be able to add on.  Because of system limitations there will be NO EXCEPTIONS made on this rule.  Please be sure of what you want to order before ordering it.
