ORDER CANCELLATIONS

We accept order cancellations up until four weeks before your scheduled ship week with full credit or refund. If you wish to cancel with less than four weeks of notice, you will not receive a refund. We reserve the eggs/chickens specifically for you once ordered and must attempt to find new homes with short notice cancellations.

ORDER SHORTAGES

In the event we cannot fulfill your order as placed, we will make every attempt to contact you to discuss your options and make the decision together. However we reserve the right to use our best judgment to decide on your behalf if your response is unavailable. Please understand, we are working with live animals and hatching eggs which are perishable in addition to Post Office deadlines which are firm, therefore your quick reply to our outreach in these situations is necessary and appreciated.

Options if we are not able to fulfill your order as placed.

Good: Reschedule your order for a time when all the breeds originally ordered will next be available.
Better: Ship the order without the unavailable breed originally ordered.
Best: Substitute by choosing from the available list of breeds. If the breed substituted is of higher value than the breed originally ordered, no more money will be due. If the breed substituted is of lower value than the breed originally ordered, you will receive a credit or refund.

If none of the above options fit your needs, you can always opt to cancel your order for a full credit or refund.

CHICKEN GUARANTEE

We guarantee your chickens to arrive alive and healthy or your money back. A credit or refund will be issued for losses that cause your order total to be less than the original number ordered. In the rare event of a complete loss, a total credit or refund will be issued, shipping not included. You must notify us immediately of any DOAs or losses that occurred within 48 hours of arrival.

HATCHING EGG GUARANTEE

We guarantee hatching eggs to arrive in visibly undamaged condition or your money back. A credit or refund will be issued for visibly damaged eggs that cause your order total to be less than the original number ordered. In the rare event of a completely damaged order, a total credit or refund will be issued, shipping not included. We do not guarantee hatch rates due to the many variables it takes to successfully hatch chicks. Your eggs will be the freshest available and the same ones we hatch weekly.

BREED QUALITY

Our goal is to provide a good foundation for which you can start or add to your own breeding program. Our website includes pictures of our flocks at various stages. The flocks you see produce what you get. You'll want to determine your own goals and cull accordingly as surely not every one of our birds will meet all of your criteria. It's just the nature of the business. Generally, we do not credit or refund for quality issues unless there are major faults, which are handled on a case by case basis. We appreciate your understanding.
