New Beginning in 2006: 50% Deposit required (see below)
Usually in the fall, we have bantams & standards that we can offer to the fancy. Prices range from $35 per bird to $100. I have occasionally sold show winners, but that would be a matter of correspondence. Our Cochin Bantams are priced at $50 per bird. Marans are priced at $35-50. Obviously we do ship... through the US Postal Service. We have been shipping using the USPS for years with excellent results. You must use a special box (approved by the PO) which are $15, $20, or $25 depending on size (based on the number of birds shipped). I have a supply of these boxes. You can put up to 6 adult bantams in a large box. The cost of shipping is very reasonable... ranging from $35 to $60 again depending on the number of birds shipped. I try to ship on Mondays. Transit time is either next day or 2nd day depending on your zip code. Typically if I ship Monday, you will receive your birds either Tuesday afternoon or Wednesday morning.
Cochins: We sell only adult birds. It is my philosophy to sell only birds that I would breed from. I prefer to wait until the young stock develops to make sure they are of quality. We ship most of our birds from September through November, depending on the weather.
Unfortunately, I had in 2005 a number of "buyers" who ordered birds from us and then when ready to ship reneged on their order. As a trusting individual, this bothers me greatly. Beginning in 2006 I am forced to require a 50% non-refundable deposit on all ordered birds to guarantee a place for you on the list of your chosen color (s) and breeds. It simply shows me good faith on your part. If, of course, I am unable to ship the birds you desire, I will promptly refund your deposit.

Even if you choose not to obtain any birds from us at the present time, I am always here to try to answer any poultry questions you may have.
Let me know if I can help and whether you purchase birds from us or not... my advise is to "always buy the best you can afford"...
Best of Luck!!!
