Q: What is my best minimum order?

A:

We want to be sure your chicks arrive safely, so we have a special packaging method so your new pets are snug and secure while they travel. In fact, we customize bedding, ventilation, and even provide high-tech, long lasting heat packs so your small order of chicks will be happy and healthy when you pick them up at the post office.

All that said, it's still necessary to set minimums to ensure their comfort. So while we don't have required minimums per breed, the total number of birds you order must meet the minimum order for your area. Most of the year, the smallest minimum order is only three chicks, but the minimum for your location could be higher, based on how long the USPS estimates it will take for your order to arrive at your local post office. The longer they tell us it will take, the higher your minimum. During the winter months, keep in mind that the minimum order will be significantly higher in order to make sure the chicks stay warm and safe. (See the related questions below)
