Unfortunately we are sold out of chicks for 2015.
Just for the record, we are a very small operation, a couple with one cabinet incubator here in Windsor, Vermont where it is very cold. We don’t sell any chicks except Icelandic Chickens, all pure, straight run.
Day old Icelandic chicks, straight run, `15 minimum, $8, plus overnight shipping and a special chick box.
For local pick up, there is no minimum. Write me for an appointment.
$25 non-refundable deposit to hold a spot on the list, must pay in full before we ship.
18 hatching eggs $50, includes postage. The box can hold up to 72 eggs. We use a foam insert. $1.50 per additional egg over 18. I always fit a few extra when I have them. The weather must be such that they won’t freeze in transit.
We can’t promise dates yet, because we’ll start the incubator in the spring when the eggs are no longer frozen and do pickup orders only until it’s warm enough to ship. That happens sometime in April or May reliably.
If you reserve a spot, I’ll let you know where you are on the list.
If something happens and you can’t take your spot, let me know as soon as possible, and I can usually just shuffle. Stuff happens, and I’d rather you were ready for them so they have the best shot at survival.
We won’t be shipping started pullets this year. The cost and trouble were just overwhelming. We’re still happy to do local pickup at $25 each, with a free cockerel if you want one.

The photo set of my birds is over 1200+ photos and documents their entire time with us. I keep track of dates and patterns and colors in the photo descriptions here. The category archive from our blog is here.
