All shipped ducklings and chicks will be "day-olds". Shipped orders require a minimum of 10 standard (includes ducks) or 15 bantam birds. Know that we are not a hatchery, but a breeder and will occasionally have a waiting list for certain breeds. We are also located in Wisconsin, and shipments will be held back in frigid temperatures. We are not responsible for the handling by the USPS. All sales are final unless we are unable to fulfill your order as processed due to unforeseen circumstances. Please keep all of the above in mind before placing your order!
