Please read the below ordering information carefully! If there are any questions, please do not hesitate to ask before placing your order.
Day-old Availability: Hatching season we will be from March through June. Bantam (including Call) ducks are only available as adults starting in late summer/ fall. Birds will be available for pick up at Wheeler Farms. We will contact you to coordinate your pick up date and time.
Sexing: All day-old birds are sold as straight-run (unsexed). By nature, birds are hatched out at a 50/50 ratio of males and females, however this could vary week by week and is not guaranteed.
Minimum Orders: Ducks and Chickens are social animals and often do not do well raised individually, therefore a minimum of three (3) day-old chicks OR ducklings is required.
Hatching Eggs: We offer hatching eggs for sale, however hatching poultry is a challenging task that requires multiple variables to be perfect. Therefore, we do not offer any guarantee on hatching eggs and cannot guarantee your hatching success. Hatching eggs are available for shipping.
Ordering: All order are filled on a first received, first filled basis. As we have to count our birds before they hatch, we will try to contact you a week prior to your order hatching to confirm your pick up date.
Hatching Assortments: All hatching assortments are filled at Wheeler Farms discretion with no guarantee of a specific breed, however all birds will be purebred to their breed
