Shipping, ordering and policies

We are a small family owned farm. Chickens are a passion and love for us. We are not a large commercial breeder and therefore we are limited in the amount of chickens we can ship and in many cases we are totally dependent on the out come of the hatch, the hens ability to lay enough eggs at one time to feel your order and unforeseen  problems such as weather, power outages, the loss of a primary breeder or broody hens. Our English Orpingtons tend to all go broody at the same time. If you are not willing to wait on the delivery of these wonderful and amazing birds then we completely understand but if you are then you will are sure you will be pleasantly happy with what you get. Feel free to contact us for any needs or questions you may have. Thanks for considering us for all your rare chicken needs. This information applies to all orders.
