Welcome to Wild Acres!

Wild Acres is located in Armstrong, British Columbia, Canada. We breed and sell 18 different types of heritage chicks and hatching eggs. We specialize in coloured eggs and most of our breeds are exhibition lines. We also sell Indian Runner ducks and hatching eggs, African geese, mixed bred heritage turkeys and registered Nubian goats. We sell colourful free range eggs year round.

We are open for gate sales and we ship fertile eggs across Canada via Xpresspost from March until early summer. We ship chicks via ACE Courier to select locations in BC and Alberta. We ship ducklings to select ACE Depots in BC only. We do not ship chicks or ducklings to Vancouver island or other BC islands due to the length of time it takes to get there. We do not sell or ship pullets or adult chickens. 

Please read our Biosecurity Policies under our Policies and Ordering page.

We breed many unique and beautiful chickens including the Cream Legbar, Cream Brabanter, Swedish Flower Hen, Silver Laced Polish, Mottled Houdan, Ameraucana, Marans, Australorp, Jersey Giant, Barred Rock, Light Brahma, Orpington, Wyandotte, Welsummer, Standard Cochin, Olive Egger, Silkie and the Belgian d‘ Uccle.

We have enjoyed showing our registered Nubian goats and heritage poultry/waterfowl at the Interior Provincial Exhibition, West National Goat Show, Salmon Arm Fair, APA Canadian National Poultry Show,  Fall FeatherFest and the Feather Fancier Show.  At Wild Acres we always strive for quality rather than quantity! 

We are currently taking pre-orders and deposits on chicks and waterfowl as well as hatching eggs for the spring and summer. Our 2019 order form and breed list are available in our webpage menu.

As of Feb., 22nd we are booked up until mid to late May for many of our chick breeds and fertile eggs.

We cannot guarantee shipment dates but we can stay in touch and give you an approximate time frame. Not every breed goes into full production at the same time. We do test hatches and check for fertility prior to shipments to ensure quality chicks and hatching eggs.
In order to  hold your place in queue we require an order form and a deposit.
Emails are preferred and we can answer questions more readily this way as well.

Purchasing from us means you accept and agree to our terms and conditions.

All livestock is subject to availability. We show poultry and breed towards the Standard of Perfection but we cannot guarantee show quality.
Thank you for supporting our farm.

Wild Acres philosophy is to maintain high standards and we strive to improve our heritage breed stock with each generation. Excellent nutrition and care play a key role in our animals well-being and in the quality of our shipped hatching eggs. We believe in being responsible breeders and we also value old-fashioned breeding techniques that promote a healthy flock.
Therefore we:
-bring in unrelated show lines and quality stock as needed
-select our best stock for poultry shows and breeding purposes
-cull out weaknesses, aggressive temperaments and birds that do not meet American Poultry Association Standards
-practice biosecurity and regularly consult with our veterinarian 
-provide footwear if needed however farm visits are no longer welcome on our farm. See our biosecurity page.
-gate sales transactions are done at our front gate
quarantine poultry before and after shows
-do not allow any birds to return to our property once purchased
-achieve these goals without vaccines
Please read our Biosecurity Policies under our Policies and Ordering page.

We rely heavily on word of mouth and repeat customer business and this is why we ensure all our customers get the best service and advice possible – so please, if you have any further questions, which have not been answered on our website, don’t hesitate to contact us.  Thank you to all of our returning customers as well as our new customers!

I recommend Arenbrook Acres for processing chickens and turkeys. They are a provincially licensed facility located in Falkland, BC.

Sorry, we do not ship outside of Canada. We ship to Canadian residences only.
