IMPORTANT! Keep your chickens in a calm and quite location for the first several days after you bring them home. Too much noise, activity and disruption can "overstress" chickens. (dogs barking, kids chasing them, lots of people handling and petting them) Give your chickens a chance to get settled.. they are animals with real feelings and need to be treated well. You will have plenty of time to get to know them. TOO MUCH STRESS OR EVEN MOVING POULTRY TO NEW PENS MAY CAUSE YOUR CHICKENS TO BECOME SICK! READ THIS PAGE ABOUT Mycoplasma Gallisepticum(M.G)AND HOW TO KEEP CHICKENS HEALTHY.
***please have your suitable containers ready to load chickens (we prefer) crates, wire cages, or pet carriers to carry chickens home. *** if you bring boxes be sure to include air holes and tape.
*** for orders over 25 chickens you must call prior to arrival for important details on transportation of poultry ***
Once the chickens are in your possession and out of our pens, it is YOUR responsibility for their safety..... Please take care of your new pet.
If we use our supplies and have to build your cardboard crate for you (tape and cutting air holes) there is a $10 fee per box for services no exceptions!
Chickens are pick up only and we do not ship chickens or eggs. If distance is a consideration, ask your friend or family member to purchase the chickens for you and meet you half way from your destination.
Bring your own container and supplies to transport your new chickens home. You can choose your pet and bring your own containers.
Blue Star makes the following suggestions. Keep a dish for water and a carrier with open air holes for breathing. After choosing your chickens, keep air conditioner on in your car for a comfortable ride home.
