Chick Season 2020

February 28, 2020 to September 25, 2020

Chick Days Notes

  1. No holds or pre-pays: you must be present, in the store, to purchase birds. The only exception is a special order (meeting minimum requirements). Please speak to a manager to arrange this.
  2. Birds will only be available during Chick Room Hours: Mon-Sat: 9am-5pm & Sun: 10am-4pm.
  3. All chicks, except meat birds, have been vaccinated by the hatchery for Marek’s disease. Turkeys, ducks, geese, and guineas have NOT been vaccinated.
  4. Chicks have been “sexed” by the hatchery, unless marked “Straight Run”. Results are 90% effective.
  5. “Straight Run” birds are hatched and sent out to us without being sexed. About 50% will be female and 50% will be male.
  6. We do not guarantee the sex of any bird. Older, unwanted birds (NO CHICKS) may be dropped off at our Monroe store. Birds must be old enough to fend for themselves. We will not refund you for the birds, but we will rehome them for you.
  7. Purchase & prepare housing for chicks prior to purchase of birds. Make sure the habitat is properly warmed, safe from predators, and supplied with food, clean water, and adequate bedding.
  8. Death sometimes happens to small creatures. We monitor all of our birds carefully, making sure that they are strong and healthy enough to go home with customers. Should one of your chicks die within the first 24 hours after purchase, we will replace your chick with another of comparable value. Proof of purchase is required for replacement of bird.
  9. Should multiple deaths occur in your young flock, we will help you find solutions to prevent that problem from occurring again. Unfortunately, we cannot replace birds that die due to mistake of negligence on the part of the owner.
  10. Once a chick is purchased and leaves the store, we cannot refund or take back live baby birds.
  11. Birds are happiest as members of a flock. To support their health, a minimum purchase of two birds to the same species is required. Manager’s approve will be required to make exceptions.
