The MacFarlane Pheasants Chick Catalog is ready to go! We sent an e-blast to customers who have ordered from us in the past, letting them know that we are ready to accept orders. If you haven’t received a catalog, you can download one on our website. You can also call us at 1-800-345-8348 or 608-757-7881 to place an order or order online. Please call us for international price quotes.
We will also have eggs available in March, April, May, and June. Our minimum order is 30 eggs, and they are sent by priority mail in bubble-wrap cushioned packing cases to ensure safe arrival. Domestic shipments are sent with 360 eggs per case, 2% of eggs at no charge. Shipping and handling are additional and determined by the quantity ordered.
We ship directly to your local post office in the US the day the chicks hatch and we include 5% free chicks in every order. The post office will call you when your order arrives. It is usually a good idea to let your post office know you are expecting a shipment. Your order will arrive in 2-3 business days. From March to May, we ship using heat packs to ensure the chicks stay warm and safe. From June till August, we ship using our ventilated summer box so the chicks don’t over heat.
We are entering our fifth season of using a chick ordering system to keep track of weeks when we have chicks available. Chris Theisen, our production manager, inputs all production numbers into the system. This allows customers to order chicks online or to order directly from sales staff in the office. The entire staff can see what we have available and take orders as soon as they are received. This system prevents us from over-selling because up-to-date numbers are always available, and the system tells us when we don’t have chicks available. Once we have a better idea of the hatching and fertility rate (usually three weeks before they hatch) we can increase or decrease production according to sales.
Be sure to look at our 2021 Chick Catalog and get your orders placed. We hatch over a million chicks a year, but we want to make sure the breeds you want are available when you want them this spring.
