“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!
-- we cannot take requests, as we are at the mercy of Mother Nature's whims!
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.
