RareBreedAuctions.com is dedicated to preserving America’s rare and heritage breeds of poultry and livestock. We believe that the best way to save these breeds is to create a market for these animals where buyers and sellers can meet and bargain in a fair and professional environment facilitated by state-of-the-art technology. RareBreedAuctions.com is committed to providing that opportunity to you, the buyer or seller of rare breeds.

Other auction sites created by livestock experts have failed the test of time due to a lack of technical proficiency and poor customer service. At RareBreedAuctions.com, we specialize in raising livestock, but we also make our living in developing and maintaining customer relationships through online communication.

We are committed to building a strong and ethical community that allows members to sell and bid with confidence. We pledge to be responsive, helpful and friendly to our members and guests, and we encourage you to tell us about your experiences so that we can continuously improve our service.

We welcome you to our community and look forward to meeting your needs.

The winner of this auction will receive 12 day-old “late bloomer” chicks. This auction is for chicks that just needed a little extra time in the hatcher and weren’t quite dry enough for our usual shipping deadline.

SERIOUS BIDDERS ONLY! By bidding you are creating a legally binding contract. Do not place a bid for higher than what you are willing to pay if you win this auction. All unpaid buyers will be blocked from bidding and reported to the RBA admin.

Your bid acknowledges that you have read and agreed to our terms and conditions (updated November 2020).


The expected ship date for this auction is the Tuesday that immediately follows the close of auction (unless a holiday interferes). The winning bidder will receive a confirmation email at the close of auction with an expected ship date. These chicks will ship the day after the ship date listed on your confirmation email. Be prepared to receive your chicks within 1-3 days from your ship date. In the event that we are significantly short on the hatch, your order will be rescheduled within 3 weeks (see details below). We’re sorry but we cannot accommodate ship date requests for chicks won at auction.

Do not bid on this auction if you will be out of town within 3 weeks of your ship date. We will NOT be able to reschedule the shipment. It is your responsibility to schedule and organize the pick up of your chicks, plan your bid accordingly.

We cannot ship orders won at auction to Hawaii, we’re sorry! There is simply not enough time for us to apply for and obtain the required permit.


If we are short on the hatch by a few chicks (within reason), we will refund you for the shortage on a prorata basis and your order will still be shipped unless the shortage puts the shipment under our shipping minimum. If the hatch is significantly short, we will reschedule the order to a new hatch date within 3 weeks.


Please pay at the close of auction to avoid a delay in the shipment of your chicks. All chicks are shipped at day-old. If you do not pay for your chicks in time for shipping we will NOT hold the chicks to ship another day while we wait for your payment. Please follow the “direct pay with PayPal” link at the close of auction.

The winning bidder pays $35 for shipping. We will ship USPS Priority Express. Orders are not guaranteed to arrive overnight.

We cannot combine the shipping of late bloomer chicks with chicks scheduled for our regular ship date.


NPIP: 58-1156-E. Your copy of the NPIP VS form 9-3 will be attached to your shipping confirmation email for your records. We will file a copy with the state. This is required.

Chicks will be vaccinated for Marek’s Disease.

You are bidding on 12 unsexed day-old chicks from Greenfire Farms and may include any chicken breed that we keep on the farm. For a full list of the breeds we keep please go to our website. The chicks you receive will be selected based on which chicks hatched late this week, and no requests for specific breeds to be included or excluded can be accommodated. We will email you a list of the breeds included after they are shipped. We do not guarantee that you will receive the breeds photographed or that you will receive an assortment. The merits of each bird should be evaluated as they reach adulthood.

Don’t forget to check out our FAQ page.

Thanks for your interest in this auction, and good luck bidding!

By registering as a member you agree to abide by our Code of Conduct, and any violations of the Code of Conduct will result in being banned from this site and such other legal action as may be required. The Code of Conduct is as follows:

  1. A person may not create multiple accounts.
  2. A seller may not bid on his or her own auction and may not coordinate with family and friends to do so.
  3. A winning bid creates a legally binding contact, and winning bidders are required to pay the seller. If you have questions about an animal being auctioned the time to ask those questions is well before the close of the auction. Doubts, unanswered questions, second-guessing, an unanticipated or sudden change in personal circumstances, or buyer's remorse are not valid reasons for a winning bidder to refuse to pay after an auction closes.
  4. Read the text of the auction carefully before you bid. Once you bid your bid cannot be undone. Your bid is a legally binding offer to the seller, and if you are the high bidder your offer is automatically accepted and becomes a legally binding contract under which you are obligated to pay the seller.
  5. Sellers may not use other people's photos, breed descriptions, or trade names without their express written permission. Copyright violations are not allowed.
  6. Sellers must accurately describe the animal they are selling including the pedigree of the animal.
  7. When giving feedback a person must accurately describe the facts that support the feedback rating.
  8. In order to be valid, feedback must be posted by sellers within seven days after payment is due and for buyers within seven days after the birds or eggs are shipped.
  9. A person may not send profane or harassing messages about an auction.
  10. A seller advertising imported poultry must be prepared to provide a copy of the USDA import permit proving the legal importation of the poultry. Only legally imported poultry may be sold at auction.
  11. A seller or buyer may not use an auction or RBA-related tools to negotiate direct sales outside of an auction. This includes asking buyers to "gift" money via PayPal.
  12. A seller may not pre-sell hatching eggs or day-old chicks with a shipment date more than four weeks after the auction ends.
  13. This is a community. Be POLITE and courteous. If you are rude, you may be asked to leave.
  14. A seller will comply with all relevant government regulations including those related to the shipping of live birds and NPIP compliance.
