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 Monday 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. 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.
IN THE EVENT OF A SHORTAGE
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. If you prefer to receive a breed substitution in the event of a shortage please send us a message as soon as the auction closes. We will honor requests if possible but we will ultimately choose a comparable breed that is available (i.e. egg layer for egg layer, gamefowl for gamefowl, dual purpose for dual purpose).
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 Monday’s 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.
If you win multiple auctions we will combine the orders IF POSSIBLE. Keep in mind that the $35 shipping charge is for a box that holds up to 20 chicks (give or take depending on time of year and size of chick). Additional shipping charges will apply if larger/multiple shipping boxes are required. We do not guarantee that shipping can be combined or that chicks will ship in the same week. Each auction is processed as a separate order. Please pay the total amount due, including postage, to avoid a shipping delay. We will refund unused shipping charges if applicable.
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.
