Chick Shipment Policy
Boxes come in 25, 50 and 100-count sizes. We take the utmost care in making sure that your order is filled correctly and that it is prepared for shipment according to local temperatures at both the source and destination locations, as well as along the shipping route. This will ensure that your chicks arrive to you in optimum condition.
During the winter and cool weather, we take extra precautions to keep your chicks warm during shipment, and during the summer or warmer weather, it is likely that we will pack your order with 20% fewer chicks per box, usually using one or more additional boxes.
Your chicks will depart from the USPS distribution center, and will be sorted to ensure that they are put on the correct delivery vehicle, or airline, to arrive to you in a timely manner.
Most USPS Priority Mail and USPS Priority Mail Express shipments arrive within 1-2 days after the hatch date.
