Hatch Weeks: April 4, 18; May 2, 16, 30; June 13, 27; July 11.
Order Early! Please remember we process and fill orders on a first come, first served basis. We never know from year to year which will be the hot items that everyone will want, so place your orders early even if you don't want them until summer. If you don't get your name on the list early for the date that you prefer, that date may already be booked up for the breeds you want.
Order limits: The number in parenthesis after a breed is the maximum number of that breed that is available from any one hatch. You may order fewer than that number if you would like. If you would like more than that number of that particular breed, you must order enough birds for two (or more) separate shipments from two (or more) separate hatch dates.
PLEASE REMEMBER ALL DAY-OLD POULTRY IS SOLD AS STRAIGHT RUN ONLY. WE DO NOT SEX ANY OF THE DAY-OLDS. Since we do not sell sexed chicks, we have no control over what you receive as far as a male-female ratio. Ideally, it is supposed to be a 50-50 split, but anyone who has been in poultry knows it can vary from that.
PLEASE NOTE MINIMUM NUMBER OF BIRDS REQUIREMENT BEFORE ORDERING!
You MUST order 6 to 8 geese (the equivalent of 25 chicks) per order. You may mix ducks and geese in one order. One goose equals two ducks. This is required because the geese will not stay warm enough to arrive alive at your Post Office if there are too few geese in the box. The only option that we have to keep the geese warm enough to ship is by the body heat of the geese. Please do not ask us to ship less than this minimum requirement.
