CHICK DAYS 2022!

 

2022 Chick Day Availability

For the 2022 Chick Season, the hatcheries that we work with have made some changes regarding availability for the upcoming season. Unlike in years past, we’ve had to commit to quantities of Poultry well in advance this year. These are placeholder numbers to assure that we will receive what we have committed to. We may not be able to go above and beyond the pre-allocated numbers. We’ve done our best to allocate as accurately as possible based on previous year’s numbers, without going overboard.

 

What this means:

We strongly encourage you to get your orders in well in advance of the order deadline for your desired pick-up date. Regardless of the printed order deadline, we may be forced to stop accepting orders ahead of that deadline, should we hit our allocation. In the event that we go over our allotment, the earlier that we know this, the more likely we are able to increase our quantities on any given pick-up date.

 

This may end up being a non-issue and we may not have any availability issues; however, the hatcheries are being very leery on making any guarantees this season. We wanted to be upfront with our customers from the beginning so that there are no surprises. As always, should we run into supply problems, we will happily work with you to find the best possible solution.

 

Please print out the order form(s) and submit them in person at one of our retail stores.

 

Thank you for your understanding.
