Description

Minimum Order 4 Chicks

You can select assorted breeds or opt for a single breed as long as the total number of chicks is 4 or more.
This policy is in place to ensure the well-being of the chicks. Day-old chicks thrive in small groups, where they can snuggle, play, and interact. Being part of a group allows them to bond, and if any unexpected issues arise, they still have others to rely on. Additionally, transitioning to outdoor life, such as integrating into an existing flock, is easier for chicks raised in a small group.

Unsexed chicks

Unsexed chicks belong to breeds where gender cannot be definitively identified by physical traits at hatching. The only method to determine their sex is by a skilled or equiped vent/probe chick sexer, which yields approximately 80% accuracy. As we lack this expertise, we offer them as ‘Unsexed,’ leaving it to nature to reveal their gender.

The ratio of male chicks in “Unsexed” batches can vary widely, ranging from 0 to 100%.
On average, our customers typically receive a ratio of 40-60% male and female chicks, but there have been instances where an entire batch purchased turned out to be all male or all female. Unfortunately, in instances where the entire batch picked up turns out to be all males, we sometimes receive unwarranted blame. As much as we wish we could control the gender outcome, it ultimately depends on nature’s chance and the luck of the draw.

We want to ensure that all our customers fully understand this variability before making a purchase. If you’re not comfortable with this level of uncertainty, we kindly advise against purchasing “Unsexed” chicks.

Sexed chicks

Our sexed chicks are hatched from either Auto-sexing or Sex-Linked color breeding pen eggs. Upon hatching, chicks display distinct colors and markings based on their sex, enabling us to accurately determine their gender by appearance.
