I comply with that standard.

Birds For Sale

Due to the extreme summer temperatures in Redding, California (over 100 degrees!), there may be shipping delay considerations. Private viewing and sales by appointment only, and applies to sold birds being picked up after purchase at this time. Maintaining bio secure environmental goals of disease prevention is a primary concern. I do not vaccinate or medicate adult birds. Although chicks are fed medicated purina chick starter until after they are on the ground to promote cocci soil bacteria immunity development.

For Local Residents – we have local pick-up and delivery.  Sales of eggs to the public is year round, for pick-up at the Hatchery or local delivery, many with fixed prices.
