Backyard Chickens | Delivery & Pick-Up

How it Works

Choose Local 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 local 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 local delivery after we receive your order, and again before the delivery date with an anticipated 1-2 hour window. Deliveries may occur as early as 7:00 am, and as late as 7:00 pm. To receive local delivery, please plan to be there to accept your delivery in person. 

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. Orders must be placed at least 24 hours prior to pick up in order for consideration for next-day delivery.

If you create an appointment, a representative will be there at the time you selected, or until all orders selected for pick up have been collected. (Please note: feed stores are not authorized to hold chickens for late pickup.) 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.
