How are baby poultry shipped?

We ship them out through the US Postal system. Depending on the size of your order your chicks will either be sent  Express or Priority. Please, keep in mind USPS is our only outlet for shipping poultry. They do not guarantee Express shipments to arrive next day. Here's an excerpt from regarding Express (Live Animal) shipments: "Customers sending Express Mail shipments containing live animals should expect a 2-3 day transport of their shipment." Therefor we do advise that whether your order is shipped Express or Priority your chicks could arrive within 24-72 hours.
