Chick Schedule/ Policies 2021
Over 60 breeds of chicks, ducks, and turkeys every year, many heritage breeds.
We have new chicks coming every Friday year round!
Check us out on Facebook.com/EUFGC for updates.
Chick Schedule will now be posted on our New Arrivals page. Visit it here.
Standard breeds are sexed at 90% female unless marked otherwise. (bantams and ducklings are always straight run**) All chicks are immunized against the 2 most common strains of Mareks and all birds are NPIP certified.
We cannot hold or pre-order chicks, and all chick sales are final.
*** Our curbside pickup service is not available for livestock. ***
Raising livestock is fun and rewarding, but requires preparation and commitment.
Prices: $5-7 for chicks depending on breed, ducklings are $8-10
COVID- 19 Poultry Policy
Due to recent unprecedented demand for our livestock, we have implemented new policies at Eastside Urban Farm & Garden. Our staff are essential agricultural workers and our policies are designed to insure both their, and our customer’s health by limiting the number of individuals on site at any one time.
We encourage customers to do research to understand fully what’s involved in rearing poultry before coming in to make a livestock purchase. We discourage impulse buying of any breeds, especially waterfowl,and reserve the right to limit poultry sales at any time. We currently have a 12 bird maximum purchase limit, but may implement further limitations in certain circumstances.
In order to ensure the safety of staff and customers on site we are implementing the following safety procedures on chick arrival days:
- Our doors open at 10am. If chicks arrive on time (8am) we will be able to start releasing them at 11am.
- We have an online sign-up schedule system to pick up new chicks, while maintaining occupancy limits in the store. Sign up starts the day before arrival each week. Usually that will be Thursdays at 10am.
- Please do not come into the store for your livestock until your scheduled time. We have strict occupancy limits and ask that folks work together to keep everyone safe.
Sales will begin at no earlier than 11 am to try to ensure the health of the livestock. All livestock sales are final.
We’d like to remind folks that we get poultry every week all year round, so there should be no rush to get livestock without proper preparation and consideration.
We have a 12 chick limit. For folks wanting more than 12 birds, please consider ordering from a hatchery directly.
