“Assortment" refers to the possible breeds you may receive in your order, and NOT the number of chicks. Please specify the number of chicks you want to order from this assortment in the “Quantity” field when placing your order.
In other words, if you order one of this assortment, you'll only receive one chick! The more you order, the more likely you are to receive a variety of different breeds — we aim to please!
The breeds chosen to fulfill your order are selected by the hatchery based
on which breeds had a particularly good hatch the week your shipment is
scheduled — we cannot take requests, as we are at the mercy of Mother Nature and her whims!
If you really want that one particular breed, then you'll either need to wait for its availability to pop up or consider hatching at home. Also keep in mind that breeds in assortments may or may not be tagged, specific breeds may or may not be noted on the packing list, and we cannot help identify unlabeled assortment chicks.
Before you make your decision to purchase a hatchery choice assortment, you may want to read some frequently asked questions about the assortments:
*Please note that while the birds in this assortment chiefly lay blue or green eggs, a couple out of a hundred will lay another egg color, including tinted, brown or even pinkish. Each hen will give ONE egg color. The egg color will not change from one egg being laid to another. For example, if your hen has just laid a green egg, it will lay a green egg its entire life.
* The minimum order of day-old chicks shipped to Rhode Island is 12 due to Rhode Island state law.
