No. Eggs and chicks must be shipped separately. When you are ready to checkout, click “Cart” in the top right hand corner of the page, and add the correct type of shipping charge for your order before you click “Checkout”. You may order eggs AND chicks but as they must be shipped separately you will need to add both kinds of charges to your order.

What are my options for shipping chicks/birds?
We want to ensure you get your birds alive and in good condition just as you want to receive them that way! The best shipping method to ensure this is USPS Express Mail, and that is what we use. Make sure we have your phone number to make it easier for the Post Office to call you when your package is ready to pick up!
When will my order ship?
We will begin the process of shipping after your payment is received. After you place your order we will send you an estimated shipping date, as orders are subject to availability. All orders will be shipped on Monday or Tuesday to reduce the chance your eggs or chicks will get stuck at the post office over the weekend.
Weather plays a huge role in when we can ship, as we want your chicks and eggs to get to you safely. If the temperatures are extremely hot or cold we may ask to postpone your shipment until the weather becomes more temperate.
What are my options for shipping eggs?
You can choose to ship your eggs by USPS Priority or by USPS Express Mail. Express is the best option for several reasons. It is just a faster method of shipping overall and your eggs will arrive sooner. Express Mail usually arrives within one to two days. Priority Mail usually takes three to five days. Also, Express Mail packages can be held for pickup at your local Post Office and the package will not be subject to further jostling and weather extremes by the local carrier ride. The Post Office will call you to let you know there is a package waiting for you. Both of these points mean higher hatching rates for YOU.

Are my birds and eggs shipped insured?
Items shipped by USPS Express Mail have $100 insurance; contact us to see about additional insurance for your shipment. Claims for insurance reimbursements are handled by your local office. It is VERY IMPORTANT to open the box in the presence of a postal worker!
