Egg Guarantee: We guarantee eggs to arrive in good condition. We will guarantee that at least 80% of the eggs you buy are fertile.
YOU MUST CANDLE YOUR EGGS & REPORT YOUR RESULTS TO US 3 DAYS PRIOR TO YOUR ANTICIPATED HATCH DATE. Infertile Eggs reported after hatch date voids the Fertility Guarantee.
Again, You MUST begin incubation within 3 days of receiving the eggs AND candle the eggs and notify us of the fertility numbers at least 3 days PRIOR to hatch if you wish to file a guarantee claim). We are truly sorry, but We do not guarantee hatch rates as this is not under our control. By ordering hatching eggs from us, you accept this responsibility. We do NOT give refunds on eggs because of hatch rates under any circumstances. That is entirely dependent on the incubator, and we have no control over the quality of care or of the incubator. So if you phone us after they hatch (or don't hatch), we cannot help you. You must call us immediately after candling the eggs. ***
Gender Guarantee: We understand that people order male or female chicks for a reason, and we guarantee 100% accuracy in sexing. You must submit a claim for gender guarantees within 12 weeks of receiving your shipment. When ordering any type of meat birds, we must be informed prior to processing. We will give a refund or store credit for birds sent of the wrong sex. We cannot process a gender guarantee until adequate photo documentation is received at firstname.lastname@example.org. If no photo documentation is received within 10 business days of submitting the claim, the claim will be closed until adequate photos are received. ***
Product Accuracy Guarantee: We guarantee products to be of the breed, variety, grade, and quality purchased. If a breed does not hatch as scheduled, we may mail a partial shipment, or reschedule your order at our discretion. We cannot process a product accuracy guarantee until adequate photo documentation is received at email@example.com. If no photo documentation is received within 10 business days of submitting the claim, the claim will be closed until adequate photos are received. ***

You will be assigned a new ship date for your replacement order. We apologize for the inconvenience. Order changes are subject to a $10 fee. An order can NOT be changed if less than ten days remain before the scheduled shipping date. ***
