Purchasing live chicks from Breezy Bird Farms is sold as a final sale. All chicks are quality control checked and shipped in good health. It is the buyers risk and responsibility to research proper care on newly arrived chicks and maintain a clean and temperature regulated system for the chicks. Chicks are guaranteed to arrive alive. once they leave the airport they are not longer guaranteed. Proof of photo at the airport is required.
BBF does everything possible to ensure the chicks arrive safely and so does the carrier. Great success has been achieved over the past9 years of shipping.

If you have any issues with the chicks upon pick up, an investigation can be made but a refund is not possible and insurance is not available. Please provide photos of any issues. Shipping costs are never refunded or credited.
HEATLH & BIO SECURITY
Poultry like any living thing on this planet is susceptible to health issues and disease. It seems that most believe that chickens are immune to health issues! This is not true. The rarer the bird, the more issues that may occur due to a limited gene pool which creates weaker birds.
The farms reputation is important, the farms goes to extraordinary lengths to ensure the birds are disease-free. With an onsite vet visitation and strict bio security.
It is very difficult to determine the origin of a disease in a chicken flock. The transmission of disease is a complex and subtle process, and even expert pathologists often struggle to identify the precise origin of a disease. If you have a flock consisting of chickens from other sources, songbirds have access to your flock, or people have visited your property after being near chickens located elsewhere, then there are potentially many different disease pathways that could cause disease in your chickens. If you feel you might jump to conclusions about disease in your flock and point finger, please do not purchase from this farm.
-- Once the animal is in your care, this is your responsibility! --
Hatching Eggs & Shipping

Hatching Egg percentage rates are not guaranteed, in purchasing our eggs you are doing so under the understanding that eggs may result in a 0 to 100 percent hatching rate based on several factors including your own incubation ability. We are successful here on the farm with our eggs and our own incubation methods. Eggs are tested weekly for fertility. Eggs are packed securely for the best possible shipping chances. Late shipping is not refundable. Please read the Hatching Egg Guide.
HATCHING EGGS AND SHIPPING INFO:
- Shipping timelines are not guaranteed and not refundable if late under any circumstance
-Eggs foam shippers are complimentary and included in the shipping charge for ordered shipped eggs
-There is a flat shipping rate shipping fee to each postal code with no limit on hatching eggs amount. This means, shipping costs the same for 4 eggs as it does for 50. No additional charges will apply.
Eggs are collected numerous times per day and sent fresh, viable and packaged extremely well and to be incubated as instructed upon receipt. Fertility is checked each week. A portion of eggs are held back each week to incubate or crack open to verify fertility. It is not always possible for 100% fertility. Fertility is approved at around 92% prior to releasing. This is an acceptable percentage.

Info on Picking up OR SHIPPING Chick orders--order confirmations
We will notify you by email only when your order is ready for pick up or for shipping. Be sure you are available and ready to check your emails once you place an order with us. BBF uses emails only to communicate. It is the buyers responsibility to check the spam folder if you have not received your order confirmation.
For updates, it is buyers responsibility to email the farm to check up on the status of their order. Chicks are to be picked up within 72 hours of us notifying you of your hatched order. Confirmation of the order is required by the buyer within 24 hours. If you are not able to pick the birds up within 72 hours of our initial contact, there is a $2 charge per bird per 24 hours to house and keep the chicks. The farm does not raise your chicks for you, so please be prompt in pick up! We will consider the order abandoned after 72 hours after our initial contact and you forfeit your deposit and chicks. We ask that you respect our policy as space is limited and other orders are in que for hatching.
*NEW* Placing chick preorders
Chick orders are for local pick up only. BBF no longer accepts out of province orders for chick pick up. This is due to many no shows or continued rescheduled pick ups. There are too many variables that can happen when driving further distances and this often results in too many issues for the farm.
When your order is delayed
This is possible due to the nature of poultry. The more breeds you order at once, the higher chance your order may be delayed. It is suggested that what is available should be shipped. Broodiness, molting and many other factors also play a role in delayed orders. Remember these are live being that cannot be controlled to do what we want. This is not a kitkat bar that can be taken off the shelf. Timing may not always be ideal for you, but timelines are not possible when dealing with live beings. Extra shipping charges will apply for multiple shipments. The farm does not pay shipping costs. If this is not suitable to you, we can ship you what was hatched an the remaining amount is by credit only. Placing an order does not guarantee you will receive the chicks you have ordered. There are many variables and obstacles in order to be successful. Many of these variables are out of our control. If the number of chicks required to fill the order is insufficient (less than 50%), we reserve the right to re-set the eggs for you. We may offer other you can choose from to to fill up your order if we have some available.
All supplies and items sold in the online store is sold as final sale. Due to bio security issues the farm does not accept returns.
