Pickup at Frey’s
Pick-up at hatchery – When you order directly from Frey’s Hatchery, we will give you a time and date for pick-up.
1. Call the order to Frey’s Hatchery if you want to pick up the birds at the hatchery.
2. For pickup orders under $100, full payment is required in advance. For orders over $100, we require a down payment of $100 or 50% of the total, whichever is greater.
3. On the arranged date, pick up the birds at the hatchery Monday for started birds; day olds on Tuesday afternoon or on Wednesday morning (if prearranged).
ALL ORDERS MUST BE PLACED IN ADVANCE
DAY OLD CHICKS: can be picked up at the hatchery on Tuesday (day of the hatch) from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. or on Wednesday morning (if prearranged). You must let us know what day you will be picking up.
READY-TO-LAY & STARTED BIRDS: can be picked up on Mondays from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Please let us know if you are coming am or pm.
In cases where the order has both day old and started birds, pick-up is Tuesdays 1:00-4:00 p.m.
You need to bring your own containers for ready-to-lay pullets.
Box Sizes and Quantities
We have 3 standard box sizes and 1 mini box for 10 chicks or less. The standard boxes are divided into corners or sections as follows:
• Large (4 sections)
• Medium (2 sections)
• Small (1 section)
• Mini (10 chicks)
Each section can hold 25 chicks or 20 turkeys or 30 pheasants or 14 ducks.
If the weather should get too hot we reduce the chicks per corner to 20.
These are the optimal amounts to keep the chicks comfortable in transit.
For prices of birds, consult the current price list available from your feed store or pick-up pricing from Frey’s Hatchery.
