Shipping birds through USPS
Our live birds are shipped via USPS Priority Express Mail in reinforced boxes, packed with care. We guarantee live delivery and ship only the highest quality birds directly from our farm. Generally orders are shipped on Monday or Tuesday the week after an order is placed, depending on the time of that week’s hatch.
While we ship eggs year round, we only ship live birds when the weather permits. Chicks tend to handle the heat well, while adult birds handle the cold better. We offer local pickup year round.
Note to California Customers: Due to the recent outbreak of Virulent Newcastle’s Disease, we are unable to ship live birds or hatching eggs to zip codes 90000 – 93599. If you live in one of these zip codes but are not in the mandatory quarantine zone (map available here), you may opt to have chicks or hatching eggs shipped for pick-up at a neighboring post office outside the restricted zip codes. Please help us keep our flocks safe by not transporting birds into, out of, or through the quarantine zone!
