Chicks are sent the day of hatch and packed with Gro-gel 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. Shipping is a flat rate of $65 per box. This includes the cost of shipment, shipping box, Gro-gel and heat packs for the chicks. 1 box holds up to 25 chicks. Any order over 25 chicks will require a second shipping box.
