What if your chickens doesn't perform as well as from a hatchery or another breeder?
Bring it back for a full refund. As simple as that.
Raising animals should be a positive experience. So we do whatever we can to ensure you are happy with your purchase.
How do I know you have the specific breed I want?
If its listed in our store and you can add that item to cart, then we have them. We update the site to reflect availability. However, please read individual descriptions to ensure when you can pick them up. Some may be available tomorrow. Others such as if you are ordering a 1000, day old chicks, it may take up to 3 weeks.
Same day pick up, is normally not available for new customers. If you are a repeat customer on an honor system, please feel free to stop by at your convenience.
Can I pay cash?
We prefer online orders. But yes, you can pay cash. But we require you to call 410-459-0387 to schedule and bring exact change. We do not catch birds for people who may forget to show up.
Do you offer boxes for transporting the birds?
Yes, we can lend you a transport coop for a deposit of $75 dollars. When the coop is returned clean, you get a full refund. If its returned with bird feces, a $15 charge is assessed. If its returned damaged, the you lose the refund.
Coops are usually dirty when you pick them up from us as birds may have been in it for several hours.
Can you take my older birds?
Yes, we can. However, we cannot assure them a retirement life. If they are good sitters, there is a good chance they may be around for a while. Otherwise, they will be processed at the butcher.
Are you Organic Certified?
No we are not. We dont believe in marketing speak. We sell what we eat. If its good enough for our children, its good enough for our neighbors and friends. Thats all there is to it.
Are you GMO Free?
The corn and soy that goes into our feed is said to be non-GMO. However, we are not sure at the mill, there are non GMO residues or if we meet the non GMO standards or what those standards are.
Can I get a better deal?
We offer fair prices that change based on supply and demand. You may see our price fluctuate based on a number of variables such as making room for new birds etc. So the prices you see online on any given day is the price you pay.
