Q: The website says the breed I want is available for a date I want, so why isn't that a choice when I'm checking out?


In most cases, that will be because you are ordering more chicks than are available for your preferred date. When you place virtual chicks in your shopping basket, My Pet Chicken's automated checkout system takes quantity into account, so it could be that you're trying to ordering FOUR chicks, when we only have one or two left on your preferred date.

When that is the case, obviously, we can't reserve chicks for you that we don't expect to have, so you are offered only the date choices in which your combination of breeds--and at the quantities you want!--will be available. Availability is updated automatically every five minutes so it is always accurate.
