Our Updated Chick Purchasing Policy

Updated 1/4/2024

With the high demand for chicks, we have decided to continue using the following chick-purchasing policy and procedures for the 2024 season:
 
  • Chicks will go on sale at 9:00 am Friday mornings until sold out. (See below for exact dates.)
    • We occasionally run into shipping delays with the USPS. All arrival dates are expected, but not guaranteed. We welcome you to call the store between 1:00-5:00 pm the Thursday before the release date for the latest update.​
    • If chicks have not arrived for retail before 9:00 am Friday, a post will be made on our social media platforms and the start of retail sales will begin at 9:00 am Saturday.
  • Chicks are first come, first serve.
  • Chicks cannot be held or pre-purchased.
Chicks are sexed pullets with a 90% accuracy rate. Any chicks indicated as "Straight Run" are NOT  sexed. We cannot and do not guarantee the sex of any chick sold. We cannot accept returns on live poultry due to regulations on disease control from the NC Department of Agriculture.
Chicks are farm animals and some may die. We are unable to offer refunds on chicks that die after leaving our premises.

What do I need to raise chicks?

Our chicks are sexed pullets. The hatchery has a 90% success rate.
BROODER

A chicken brooder doesn't have to be fancy or expensive. This can be as simple as a cardboard box. 

HEAT SOURCE

A heat lamp would be ideal. Chicks want to be able to come closer to or move further from the heat lamp as they please.

BEDDING

We recommend using pine shavings. Avoid slick surfaces like flat newspapers. An old towel would suffice.

STARTER FEED

Feed a complete Chick Starter Feed until the chicks are 16 weeks old. You also should provide Chick Grit free choice to the flock.

FEEDER & WATERER

Electrolytes can be added to the water to help with hydration and provided vitamins to ensure a healthy start.
