How to select Shipping options
It is important to choose an appropriate timeline when buying eggs. The farm is not responsible for delayed packages or incorrect shipping timelines chosen.
Nov 15th update- All Canada post are now shipped required a signature as is Purolator and Fedex. Customer is responsible to follow their own tracking and egg pick up. It is out of the farm control for late parcels or delays.
When selecting your shipping from Canada post in the online store at check out
The number of days stated (lets say 4 for example) This means, if the parcel is shipped on Monday. Your parcel may arrive friday. The drop off day does not count as a shipping day. Weekends do not count as a shipping day.
It is not the best option to select a long term shipping method for hatching eggs of longer than 4 days. Choosing long term shipping is at the customers full risk, as is any shipping choice. 5 days will sit over the weekend. In most cases if the package was handled well, your eggs should be fine.
There are tips to Hatch your eggs using the late shipping guide under the links tab.
Protect your investment by choosing the best timeline
BBF is located in Manitoba
Canada Post Expedited - ground shipping (Not recommended for cold weather)
A good choice if you are located in Manitoba. Saskatchewan and any other close border province that states 3 day or less delivery. 4 day can be acceptable in optimal situations. If stated 5 days, expect it to sit over the weekend. If other delays occur such as weather, holidays etc. Expect further delays. Choosing 4 days on a holiday weekend will cause over weekend delays.
Canada Post Xpresspost - This is generally 2-3 days depending how far you are from Manitoba. The online store will state the number of days for this selected option once you input your address. Remember delays can occur. New Brunswick, PEI and Nova Scotia may often be delayed with this choice.
Many times shipments arrive early, however, it is not good practice to rely on this with eggs.
Purolator Express - This is the best choice for New Brunswick, PEI and Nova Scotia. It has been noticed that the parcels arrive more on time with this choice. The farm does not recommend any other choice for these provinces. If you would like more information on the Purolator timeline, please email the farm as it is not stated at check out due to no plug in app available for the store. Provide your postal code and province to quickly receive this information. This is also a good choice for any other province.
Yukon - only Purolator should be selected. There will be additional charges beyond the check out cost. Contact the farm prior to placing your order from the Yukon, as the cost can jump dramatically depending on the area.
If you are concerned about mishandling of packaging through the mail, purchase the egg armour. Rarely do eggs arrive broken in the foam. In addition, and also recommended for winter shipping, there is a new eggshell insurance the farm offers. This covers cracked or broken eggshell as a store credit for replacement on your next order. Photo Proof is required. The farm has a right to deny any possible fraudulent claims. Please note: the insurance does not cover loss of fertility for rough handling, saddled air cells or anything of this nature.
No courier insures eggs.
Any changes with your address/postal codes after placing an order can incur different shipping costs.
