My chicks are available on different dates. Are the chicks shipping at different times, or all at once?Back to blog
Your chicks will ship all at once! All of your chicks must ship together for their safety. Alternatively, you can choose to place two or more separate orders, with each one meeting the safe chick shipping minimum. Don't worry--our shopping cart enforces that minimum, so you can't accidentally order too few for shipping safety.
Minimum order requirements for baby chicks:
April - November: 3 baby chicks
December - April: 8 baby chicks
When you place your virtual chicks in your online basket, you will be given an estimate of the first shipping date they will all be available on the same date. Even when you choose more than one breed, you don't have to figure the date yourself in order to place an order. Plus, if there are several dates on which your combination of birds will be available, you will have a selection of ship date choices later in the check out process.
If you are aiming for a specific date and want to know what is available on that date, it's easy! You can filter breeds available by date. Using the pull down menu at the top left of the day old chicks page.
Chick shipping availability is updated automatically every five minutes, so it is as accurate as possible. When you see the breeds available for the shipping date you want, make your purchase ASAP to reserve them for yourself. Simply placing chicks in your cart does not reserve your birds.
