USPS EXPRESS 2 DAY Fee- Chicks

shipping live animals is weight and destination based. Day old chicks run anywhere from $55 to $75 depending on box size, combined weight of chicks and box plus destination zip code. From Riggins Idaho it's always a 2 day trip. I include boiled egg, growgel and chick feed even with day old chicks. When ordering shipped day old chicks a minimum of 6 chicks + 1 heat pack is required.

 

picked up here- Paid in advance of collecting

Eggs and chicks can be ordered and pickup up at the ranch after collecting or hatching but all orders must be paid in full in advance of collecting or hatching eggs.

Packing in Foam

Click on the images below to view larger

Eggs are collected two to three times a day and stored in a cool dark cabinet. The eggs are rotated twice a day to help keep the yolk centered. Only the freshest collected eggs (no more than 4 days old) will be sent to the buyer. Older eggs are incubated here.

Empty foam shipping block

eggs firmly tucked into the foam blocks

protective foam caps are placed on both sides of the eggs to give them a completely secure foam padding.

9 x 9 USPS Priority mail shipping box with foam blocks inside

 

9 x 9 shipping box is placed inside the larger 12 x 12 USPS Priority mail shipping box with peanut packing material tucked all around to help center the smaller box and provide a much needed "crush zone"
