Dear Customers,

Thank you for your ongoing support. We are sold out of all hatching eggs, chicks, ducklings and goslings for 2024 and we will not be adding onto anyone’s orders. We will be taking pre-orders for 2025 via our online store on Nov. 1st. Online Store | Wild Acres

  • We only ship or sell poultry in April, May, and June. 
  • For 2024 we have downsized our breed selection due to rising feed costs.
  • We are a small farm with small breeder flocks and a limit of 6-12 hatching eggs a week available per breed/per customer.
  • We will contact our customers a week or two before their pick-up or hatching egg shipping dates.
  • We do not maintain customer waitlists from year to year, nor do we accept pre-orders over the phone.
  •  Thank you for your patience, understanding, and support of our small family farm.

    Ordering Hatching Eggs:

  • Please read our policies on this webpage before placing an order Hatching Eggs | Wild Acres
  • Hatching eggs can be picked up at our farm gate or shipped to BC, YT, AB, SK, and MB.
  • We regret to inform you that we no longer offer shipping services to Ontario, Quebec, or the eastern provinces. This decision is due to shipping delays, cost factors, and other circumstances beyond our control. 
  • We only ship via Canada Post (Xpresspost).
  • The minimum number of hatching eggs required for shipping is 12 (one dozen).
  • We only ship hatching eggs in April, May and June.
  • The shipping cost set by our online store for hatching eggs is just an estimate – we will update the real amount closer to your shipping date as Canada Post (Xpresspost) prices may vary.
  •  We appreciate your interest in our hatching egg orders. Please be aware that while we provide fresh, fertile eggs, we cannot guarantee hatch rates due to various factors involved in shipping and incubation. By placing an order with Wild Acres, you acknowledge and accept the risks associated with ordered hatching eggs. Thank you, for your understanding.
  • When your eggs have been sent to you by Canada Post (Xpresspost), the hatch rate will potentially drop to around 50% or even less.
  • Please note that picking up hatching eggs does not guarantee a high hatch rate due to various factors. These include weather variables affecting breeding chickens, handling and transportation of eggs, and differences in incubators and turners.
  •  Determining fertility by cracking eggs during or after the incubation process may not provide an accurate ratio of fertile to infertile eggs. This is because a fertile blastoderm in the egg may appear infertile after a short time in the incubator, and eggs may have been damaged during transit or may die early in the incubation process.
  • Our breeding pens generally have several roosters in each breeding pen to ensure high fertility and diverse gene pools.
  • The poultry/waterfowl are fed an enriched diet during the breeding season to promote health and maintain excellent egg quality.    
  • We do not offer replacements, credits, or refunds for hatching eggs, and we do not refund deposits unless we are unable to fulfill your order. This policy also applies to hatching eggs picked up at our farm gate.

Ordering Chicks, Ducklings and Goslings:

  • Chicks and ducklings are only available in May and June for pick up at our farm gate.
  • We do not ship chicks or ducklings.
  • The minimum number of chicks or ducklings per order is 4.
  • If you are traveling more than an hour to pick up your chicks, poults, or waterfowl you will need to order a $6 heat pack through our online store or a $30 standard-sized chick box package that comes with a heat pack.
  • Day-old chicks, poults, and waterfowl cannot regulate their temperature until they are a few weeks old, and we don’t want them to catch a chill on their way to their new home. 
  • As a small family farm business, we do not provide refunds on livestock purchases, nor do we replace birds based on their sex.
  • Chicks generally hatch out about 50% male and 50% female, and we sell them unsexed in small batches as they hatch. 
  • Due to biosecurity reasons once an animal leaves our farm, we cannot take them back.
