Minimum Order Requirements

For safe handling and delivery of your birds, The Chick Hatchery has minimum order requirements.

These minimums help the birds stay warm and prevent them from shifting around throughout the shipping process.

Each type of Fowl ordered have their own Minimums!

Different types of fowl CAN NOT be combined to meet those minimums.

However, you CAN combine different breeds within each type of fowl to meet the minimum requirements.

Here is an example

You can order 10 Rhode Island Red Chickens and 5 Cornish Cross Broiler Chickens to meet the minimum of 15 chickens.

However, you cannot order 10 Rhode Island Red Chickens and 5 Pekin Ducks to meet the minimum because you are now shipping two different types of Fowl.
