Black Copper Marans
Chicks are sent the day of hatch and packed with Grogel and heat packs to ensure they stay hydrated and warm during their trip. Chicks are sent Express through USPS and typically take 1-2 days to arrive.
From February to June we have a shipping minimum of 10 chicks to ensure that chicks stay warm enough during transit. During the peak Summer months, July-September, we drop the minimum to 6 chicks. We don't generally send many chick orders in Fall, but if we do, the minimum goes back up to 10.
Shipping is a flat rate of $60 per box. This includes cost of shipment, shipping box, Grogrel and heat packs for the chicks. 1 box holds up to 25 chicks. An order over 25 chicks will require a second shipping cost.
