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 do not want the roosters you can return them for a credit or 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"
An appointment MUST be made for returns no "drop in's" for returns.
Rooster returns NOT accepted on Friday/Saturday/Sunday busy days Without an appointment!!!!! We prefer weekdays for "eggchanges."
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. Some breeds are IMPOSSIBLE to determine the sex of such as Silkys. We do not guarantee sex of Silkys but can "eggcept" the unwanted roosters.
We do NOT give refunds if you get a rooster! We do NOT give you a hen for a rooster. (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) We will sometimes allow a $10 credit toward feed or hens or products.
