Location, Pick Up & Shipping
We gladly offer local pick up for your order. We have strict bio-security measures for both our flocks safety. Once your order has been placed and notified your order is ready to come home, we pre-arrange a pick up time and date with you to come to our pick up drive-thru. Very simple, we have your order boxed and ready to travel home for you. You will not need to bring any boxes, cartons or crates. Local pick up orders are considered sale is final.
The locations of our farms we are generally able to provide chicks and hatching eggs year around. Our hens do get 2-3 months off per year for a break to molt, rotate and just be a chicken. This is the time of year we will see lower egg counts and our availability less.
Our recommendation and best practices: From October to March we suggest a shipping minimum of 10 chicks to ensure that chicks stay warm enough during transit. During the peak months, April -September, the recommended minimum to 6 chicks.
Our farm is our home and our farms. The Arizona farm is located near Surprise, AZ. Our Texas farm is located near Tyler, TX. We offer a scheduled time to come by to pickup your order. This ensures we have your order and they're ready to come home. We also offer shipping services as well. Contact us with any questions, we're glad to help!
Baby chicks for all of our breeds are sold straight run, and customers have a 50/50 chance of receiving males or females. If you are looking for a certain number of female chicks, we'd suggest adding a few extras to your order. We do offer juveniles, adults, laying hens, pullets or roosters if you have a specific need. Our laying hens and breeds are found found here ... We are happy to arrange a custom order as well. Please contact us to do so.
No, we do not vaccinate our flock or baby chicks. We constantly monitor this with our poultry vet to ensure our birds are healthy and robust. We are tested yearly for disease as NPIP participants and customers can be confident that they are receiving healthy, happy chicks from our farms. If you would like to learn more, please contact us.
Did you know?... They don't crow till about 12 weeks at the absolute earliest, most later than that.
Couple options for roosters...
1. Use him for food for the family, maybe you have a hunter in the family that could help. Often there are families that will buy or take the rooster for meat for their family.
2. Once hes older than four months old, Pratt's Pets (Glendale location) will purchase them from you for $10 per. If they're younger than four months, the Stock Shop will accept them if they have space.
3. You could also post them in the Arizona Backyard Chicken group on Facebook to rehome him. Just have to be VERY careful with your wording. Rehome, sale and wording like that is not allowed by FB.
4. Another app called MeWe you can rehome/sell there in the Arizona Backyard Chicken group but not nearly as many people in the group.

Definitely options out there. Hope this gives you some ideas. 👍😁🍻
Juveniles & Adults
Our website is up to date. You may find some hens available to come home now and others may be pre-ordered for a specific month or timeframe (Example: March or Early June). We're here to help! You can always give us a call or a text.
The timeframes listed are 98% of the time up to date. Juvenile and adult orders are generally pre-ordered. We grow all our juvenile/adult orders from an entire month and raise all of them at one time. This reduces our costs and in turn your costs for them. If you need a specific timeframe for your birds to ship, reach out to us and we can arrange that with you. We're flexible and here to help! Sometimes we have them on hand, just ask!
Our juveniles and adults ship FREE via express shipping by USPS. The fastest way we can get your birds to you. On average we spend $75-120 per bird to ship to you. We enjoy sharing them with you!
Hatching Eggs ship year round, as long as it is not too cold or too hot in the intended destination. The bulk of our sales begin in January and continue through October. If a later order is desired, we can usually work something out with you. We also aim to ship from the closest farm to lessen the transit time and jossle.
We ship Monday through Wednesday and on Saturday. Eggs are sent Priority Express through USPS and typically take 1-3 days to arrive. We pack our eggs in insulated foam shippers and additional boxing support on both ends of the box, to help minimize the damage that can happen during transit. View our TikTok page to see how we ship hatching eggs!
Kind of expensive but I understand. So far they have been good curious little chickens. Fit right in. Maybe more human interaction with them as they grow. They are kind of flighty. On a sad note we lost one on the third day. Fell in our duck baby pool. Great experience otherwise. Will be going back to get more chickens.
Thank so much for your beautiful quail!
So happy to work with ya'll
Great birds thank you guys!
so far so good
Awesome experience getting pullets. Great communication and pickup was smooth. Will absolutely use again!!
Love them! They're happy and healthy and doing great!
Being a complete novice to the chicken world, I couldn't have been more impressed with the extreme patience and knowledge that was provided to me. Response to my, sometimes silly, questions was quick and understanding, resulting in four beautiful White Leghorn youngsters thriving in my back yard . I highly recommend AZ Chickens to both experienced and inexperienced chicken people, and in fact, already have!
