Backyard Chickens | Delivery & Pick-Up

How it Works


Choose Home Delivery or In-Store Pick Up

Our chickens, poultry supplies, and coops are carefully hand-delivered by our farmers across the coast of California. When placing your order, you'll have the option to select pick-up at the farm, pick-up at a feed store in your area, or home delivery. Chickens delivered to homes or feed stores will be delivered in reusable cardboard poultry carriers lined with bedding to maintain their health and comfort. These reusable carriers protect flock biosecurity, streamline order fulfillment, and improve the quality of poultry transportation. 


A customer service representative will contact you to confirm the date of your home delivery or in-store pick-up once your order is successfully placed. Your order must be placed before 12 pm the day prior to delivery to receive next-day delivery. To receive home delivery, please plan to be home to accept your delivery in person. For home delivery, you will receive a follow-up delivery confirmation between 3:00 - 5:00 pm one day prior to your scheduled delivery date with notification of your anticipated 1-2 hour delivery window. 

Plan for your Required Poultry Supplies


If you do not already have poultry supplies, you'll need to purchase them for delivery by Dare 2 Dream Farms or pick them up at your local feed store prior to collecting your order. You will need to confirm with the driver you have the appropriate supplies for the chickens before they will be released to you.

Baby Chicks Require:

  • Brooder Box

  • Bedding

  • Chick Feeder

  • Chick Waterer

  • Baby Chick Feed

  • Heat Lamp


Older, Fully-Feathered Chickens Require:

  • Chicken Coop

  • Bedding

  • Poultry Feeder

  • Poultry Waterer

  • Age-Appropriate Chicken Feed

A chicken coop will be required for baby chicks within 6 weeks of hatching. Plan ahead and order your coop now, so it is ready by the time they're old enough to go outside into a coop.

 ​Understand our Order Minimums

There is a minimum order of 2 chickens for delivery. For the health and safety of the chickens, Dare 2 Dream Farms reserves the right to cancel an order if it does not meet the minimum. Chickens cannot be kept alone without the companionship of other chickens as solitude is detrimental to their health. Avoid adding a single bird to your established flock when possible as integration without companionship can be stressful.

If this is your first order, we recommend reading 4 Important Things to Consider before Purchasing your First Chickens.

Read our Cancellation Policy


Cancellations for delivery and store pick-up must be made by 12:00 pm one business day prior to your scheduled delivery. For the health and safety of the chickens, and as a courtesy to our driver, cancellations made after this deadline are subject to a restocking fee. A missed delivery or in-store pick-up will also be assessed a second delivery fee if the chickens must be returned to the farm only to be reshipped on another day due to customer error.

Pick-Up Locations

INSTRUCTIONS: If you plan to pick up at Dare 2 Dream Farms or your local feed store, select "I'll pick it up myself" during checkout to choose a feed store near you. Your order must be placed before 12 pm the day prior to receive next-day delivery.

The driver will be available for the entire specified window of time, or until all orders scheduled for delivery have been picked up. (Please note:  -- the stores are not authorized to hold chickens for late pickup.) These locations are for order pick-up only. We do not bring extra chickens to sell on-site.

Please support your local feed store and purchase your feed & poultry supplies in-store upon picking up your chicks, rather than purchasing them from us. We have vetted each feed store and confirmed they offer our recommended poultry supplies and feeds.
