Minimum Order Requirements
In order for safe handling and delivery of your birds, Duncans Poultry has minimum order requirements. These minimums help the birds stay warm and prevent them from shifting around throughout the shipping process.
Please note that each type of fowl ordered has their own minimums, and different types of fowl CANNOT be combined to meet those minimums. However, you CAN combine different breeds within each type of fowl to meet the minimum requirements. For example:
You can order 5 Barred Rock Chicks and 20 Cornish Cross Broiler Chicks to meet the minimum of 25 chickens. However, you cannot order 10 Barred Rock Chicks and 15 Turkey Poults to meet the minimum because you are now shipping two different types of Fowl.
One Exception is if you are picking up chicks at our store - you can order as few as 5.
The minimum order quantities are as follows:
