Q: Do you send extra chicks with every order?


No, we do not normally add extra chicks, especially with small orders, although it may happen occasionally (usually only if someone miscounts). For larger orders or 25 or more, it is more common to receive an extra chick.

Lavender Orpington chicks

Understand that most My Pet Chicken customers are ordering very small quantities of birds, and may only be allowed to keep the number they have ordered. Since we ship with heat packs, we don't add "extra males for warmth" like other hatcheries do. If you do happen to receive an extra bird, it will be of the same sex and breed as one you have already ordered.
