The reason for the 15 poult minimum is so there is enough in the box to make sufficient body heat so they can keep each other warm enough to survive shipping. So when you place an order you may have to choose another variety or two to come up with the required number to ship. If you don't desire to place at least the minimum order of 15, we will not be able to accept your request.
Please Note! We now require that you list substitutes when placing an order with us. So please give us a list of other varieties you will also accept so that we can include something else to fill your order just in case we come up a few short on a variety. We will not completely change your order, we just need to have a couple backup varieties or so you will accept just in case we come up a few short.
Our new policy is primarily to help avoid long delays in shipping or us cancelling your order as not able to fill.
If you will not accept substitutes we reserve the right to refuse your order.
Under the new USDA/APHIS animal welfare rule we cannot sell turkeys as pets since we have to ship them to you, so you will have to select the purpose you intend to raise our turkeys for on our order form.
You can read this revised rule here.
Shipping date: There is absolutely no guarantees on a specific shipping date. But we will do the best we can to meet your latest requested date if at all possible. So please be very flexible when you choose your latest preferred shipping date.
If you cancel your order before eggs are set but after the order is booked there will be a 25% cancellation charge.
However, once eggs are set, if you cancel the order you will forfeit your payment.
Just a note about express shipping. Most of our shipments that have gone out by express mail take 1-2 days to arrive, and most all of our priority shipments made it in 1-2 days as well.
So we are finding out that express mail is not always worth the extra cost that the USPS charges for it.
Appropriate charges will be calculated in our shopping cart for the exact number of poults ordered when this shipping service is selected.
Poult ordering reminders:
Sexing: All day-old poults are sold as straight run only. We do not sex any of the day olds. Since we do not sell sexed poults, we have no control over what you receive as far as a male-female ratio. Ideally, it is supposed to be a 50-50 ratio, but it can vary from that.
