Delivery Charges – Hatching Eggs & Chickens For Sale

All hatching eggs are available to order online and are usually shipped within 1-2 working days. Of course this depends on the availability of the breed in question. We do usually have eggs available for each breed but in rare cases it can take up to 2 weeks for delivery. If you would like to check the availability of our hatching eggs before ordering please call 07976 846462 or email steve[at]cheshirepoultry.co.uk.

All our live poultry for sale can be collected by appointment only from our office or farm. However if delivery is required please see our Links page for three great poultry couriers who will be able to help you collect your chosen poultry breeds at very competitive prices. It is best to contact them direct and quote Cheshire Poultry.

Collection of hatching eggs or birds for sale is available by either emailing Cheshire Poultry (steve[at]cheshirepoultry.co.uk) or calling on 07976 846462 to arrange a time for the collection to take place at our office or at our farm.

Replacements
As part of the service here at Cheshire Poultry we will offer replacement eggs where your order does not live up to our high standards. We request that if at 7 days (after receiving the eggs) you candle them and if less than 50% of the eggs are fertile , you should return the eggs to us in their original poly box by the 10th day after receiving them. If the case is genuine and after inspection we are satisfied that less than half the eggs are fertile, we will replace the infertile eggs (subject to availability). Postage will have to be paid by purchaser.
