If a chick dies within 48 hours of being picked up, we will provide a refund or a replacement chick, if one is available. Chicks cannot be returned to the store in the interest of biosecurity.
Chicks are available for pick-up by appointment only.
All standard chicks are sexed at the hatchery (with 90% certainty), but the occasional rooster does slip through. Rooster insurance is available for $.50 per chick. If an insured chick turns out to be a rooster we will take it back and re-home it at no additional charge. If the chick is not insured, we will still take it back and re-home the rooster for a $10 handling fee. Bantam varieties cannot be sexed at the hatchery and are not eligible for rooster insurance.
