Ordering Hatching Eggs and Ducks
Full payment for hatching eggs and ducklings is due upfront. Once we have communicated and have found a time frame that works for delivery or pick up of eggs or ducklings, a PayPal "Goods and Services" invoice, which offers buyer protection, will be sent.
Our prepay policy applies to both picking up and shipping of hatching eggs/ducklings. This policy allows for accurate time frame estimates to be given. It also eliminates large amounts of time spent sending messages to people and waiting for replies. That causes serious customers to lose time and leaves us with hatching eggs that age out and more ducklings than we need.
A full refund will be issued if we are unable to fulfill your order in the agreed upon time frame. This would be due to Mother Nature. The refund will be issued through PayPal.
We do not require upfront payment for juveniles and adults as we have no way of knowing for sure what we will end up with. Those birds sell on a first come, first served basis. Please check our current availability page and message us with what you are interested in. The page is updated frequently.
Ducklings may be picked up in person. We do ship ducklings within Missouri and to neighboring states when temperatures permit. Customers must pick up ducklings at their local post office. We recommend that you contact your post office to alert them of their arrival so that they can call you as soon as they receive them. Please note that shipping can be as much, if not more than, the total cost of the ducklings. We can give you a rough shipping cost estimate based on zip code and projected weight of ducklings/food.
For hatching eggs, one invoice, which will include the cost of the eggs (plus postage if shipping), will be sent. For ducklings, one invoice, which will include the cost of the ducklings, will be sent. If shipping is required for ducklings, the cost of the box, plus Priority Mail Express shipping, will be included in a second invoice that will be sent the day of shipment. The FeatherEx 12x12x12 bird shipping boxes we use are $25. Shipping is based on weight and destination.
