We offer this return as a customer service to you because unwanted roosters may be a problem if your neighbors do not want to hear a crow! 

We ask that you follow these simple rules! If you have an unwanted rooster:

Most of our baby chicks are kept in separate pens of "pullets and straight runs." In the straight run pens it includes boys and girls. (If you have valid proof of purchase)  and do not want the roosters you can return them for a  $10 credit for another purchase. (not cash or credit return) 

We "sex" chicks at ages 2 to 3 weeks old so that you do not have to be concerned about purchasing roosters. SOME breeds are harder to determine the sex than other breeds, such as "Silkys" 

The chicks that we purchase at hatcheries are guaranteed pre-sexed pullets (females) from hatcheries, Most hatcheries are 90% accurate but sometimes there are a few roosters chicks in the flocks.  

Understand that when buying young poultry getting a rooster chick happens with A-L-L companies sometimes! If you purchase "chicks" usually 4 weeks or younger there is a chance you may get a rooster! We do NOT give refunds if you get a rooster! We do NOT give you a hen for a rooster.

​Ding! Ding! Ding! (Neither does any other company!) 

But we will take back roosters purchased from Blue Star Ranch as a service to you and with proof of purchase receipt AND (photo of chick purchased on or near date, or other form of communication: text/email credit card)  We will sometimes allow a $10 credit toward feed or hens or products. OR, with CLEAR proof of purchase from Blue Star Ranch we will sometimes replace with your rooster chick under 3 or 4 months old with a young pullet!  (6 weeks to 2 months old)  We try to get similar breed or color.

What determines if you get a replacement? Kindness, consideration and understanding about purchasing chicks and the odds of getting a rooster goes far with the chicken lady! But -  whining, blaming, threatening or becoming "offended" if you got a rooster will not assure you a replacement pullet!!!!!!  This is just part of raising chickens! It happens!
