Chick Sexing Guarantee

We do sex most of our breeds at hatching. This procedure is about 90% accurate. This also means that you have a 10% chance of getting a rooster.

If you ABSOLUTELY can not own a rooster, please consider purchasing color sexable breeds, which are sexed much more accurately.

While we do our very best to sell properly sexed birds, please understand the difficulty in this task.
If you get a rooster that was sold to you as a sexed pullet, and you can not keep it, you can request to return it to the farm. You will be issued a credit in the amount paid upon acceptance. The credit may be used toward any other bird, feed, or supplies.

Health Guarantee

We hand raise all of our chicks in the best conditions possible. They are fed medicated feed from the very first day and provided fresh clean water. Their room temperature is precisely monitored and they are socilaized as much as possible. Please understand that when purchasing baby chicks up to 4 weeks old, there is always a possibility of sudden loss. They require more care and closer monitoring then older birds.  If you would prefer to avoid this possible situation, please purchase chicks 4 weeks old or greater. We do not guarantee the survival of baby chicks once they leave our farm. We do not offer free replacements
