Terms and Conditions

​All orders are subject to the following terms and conditions.  Any purchaser of eggs or chicks from us agrees to these terms and conditions as a prerequisite of ordering.  There are no exceptions to these terms and conditions, so please read them carefully and be sure you are willing to abide by them before ordering. If you are unwilling to abide by them without complaint, please do not place an order.

Shipping charges
Shipping is now included.  What you see is what you pay, no surprises!

Hatch rate guarantee
Due to the many factors beyond our control, we make no guarantees either express or implied on your hatch rate of eggs.  We only guarantee to ship fertile eggs, and that your eggs will arrive unbroken.  We continually set eggs and have a good idea what the fertility rate is and will include extra eggs to account for any non fertile eggs you might get.  Because we ultimately cannot control nature, or your personal hatching techniques and experience, we make no guarantees that you will hatch any chicks from our hatching eggs.

Farm Tours
We take biosecurity seriously.  Farm visits expose our flocks to the potential for inadvertent disease transmission.  We simply can't take that risk.  We do not allow farm tours or for you to pick up your order at our farm.

Vaccinations and Disease
We do not vaccinate.  We believe in breeding for inherit resistance to disease.  We believe this cannot be achieved by applying blanket vaccinations indiscriminately.  For some diseases, vaccinations have proven more harmful than helpful.  

Quarantine
We recommend that you quarantine all birds received from us for at least 30 days so that they can be observed and verified to be free from disease.  The recommended quarantine is a precautionary measure.  Chicks you purchased from us that showed no signs of disease prior to being integrated with your existing flock does not necessarily mean the problem originated with our chicks.   It is very difficult to determine the origin of a disease in a chicken flock.  The transmission of disease is a complex process.  Even expert pathologists may have difficulty identifying the precise origin of a disease.

Shipping Eggs
Orders for eggs are shipped Monday or Saturday.  Eggs are shipped via Priority Mail via the United States Postal Service (aka USPS).  Estimated delivery times are up to three days.  However, Priority Mail is not guaranteed by the USPS and delivery times can be longer.  We will send you the tracking number when your eggs ship.

Purchasing Chicks or Young Birds
We offer chicks and young birds on occasion for local purchase only. 

Timing of Shipment 
It is difficult to precisely predict laying rates, fertility rates, and hatch rates.  You will be placed on a waiting list when you pay for your order.  Orders are shipped in the order in which they are received, unless otherwise requested.  Please let us know if you have any blackout dates for which you cannot receive your order, or any do not ship before dates.  We will try to accommodate your request.  We are not a commercial hatchery.  Please be patient.  We will fill your order as soon as possible.  It's all up to hens.

Order Cancellation
You may cancel your order at any time within three (3) days of ordering, provided your order has not already shipped.  If you cancel your order after three (3) days for any reason other than our ability to fill your order, you will forfeit 25% of the cost of your order.  If we are unable to fulfill your order within a reasonable amount of time (3 weeks), we will give you the option to either continue to wait or you may cancel your order, in which case you will receive 100% refund.

What to expect
You should expect birds that reflect the fundamental attributes of the breed. You should not expect a cosmetically perfect bird. In fact, you should expect to find some defects in virtually every bird you raise. Only a tiny fraction of chickens conform to their breed standard in all respects. We do not represent that every bird we sell is flawless. ​
