WHAT IS REQUIRED TO SHIP POULTRY ALONG WITH THE EXTRAS WE DO TO KEEP YOUR BIRDS COMFORTABLE DURING THE SHIPPING PROCESS.
*At this time we can only ship birds only within the USA *
It needs to be 35 degrees to 85 degrees in order to ship birds.
In order to ship poultry one needs to use an airline approved poultry box. The box is is made of heavy cardboard with vent holes that are covered with a cloth filter keeping the birds warmer during the colder months , keeping the bird safe and protected from other birds that might be transported as well.
We provide an extra treat during shipment keeping the birds content and well hydrated. These treats include cantaloupe, sliced apples, drained can corn. In the case of newly hatched chicks we provide them with boiled egg yolks and ripened cantaloupe.
A few days before shipment we give the birds electrolytes and vitamins. We also give the birds plenty of food and water before deparature.
When your birds arrive please keep them in a separate area for up to 21-30 days and give them antibiotics and/or electrolytes for 7 to 10 days upon arrival. This will provide them protection in case of exposure to other birds being shipped that might have a respiratory virus.
EGGS and CHICKS have PRIORITY SHIPPING that is already included in the PRICE.
PLEASE NOTE: BABY CHICKS can feed off the yolk within their body up to four days without food and water, but with our shipments we not only add filters over the holes of chick box, provide boiled egg yolks and/or pears, plus we provide (48) hour handwarmers as well. The $45.00 flat amount on PRIORITY mail cost for shipping baby chicks we also include (1) extra chick if available. We handle every process making sure your chicks arrive healthy.
PRIORITY MAIL- 2 TO 3 DAY DELIVERY
PRIORITY EXPRESS MAIL - 2 DAY DELIVERY MOST ALWAYS UNLESS PURCHASING FOR EXAMPLE FROM ILLINOIS AND/OR KY.
As with all poultry shipments we verify that the purchaser will be available for pick up.
Upon securing the box and/or adding tape to the poultry shipping box we add woodshavings for absorbency and to provide warmth during the shipping process. Treats and/or snacks are added to the box. Birds are inspected carefully and are put in the box. Plastic ties and tape are used to secure the box.
When we leave the post office you will be contacted by phone, text, and/or email giving you the tracking #, & payment difference if any. In almost all cases birds will arrive in 2 days vs 1 day.
If you choose to pick the birds up in person one can do so upon getting an appointment time. This will save money by not having to pay for the box and/or shipping costs.
If you are purchasing chicks, started, or adult birds there will be the cost of the birds & poultry box payable to Maria Hall before shipment occurs.

My reputation is most important and Maria's Jersey Giants has NO control of the future breeding programs set forth by past customers nor do we have anything to do with the type of business that is conducted whether it be ethical or unethical. UNLESS WE KNOW YOU VERY WELL AND THERE IS TRUST ESTABLISHED WITH Y
OUR BREEDING PROGRAM WE WILL ABSOLUTELY NOT SWAP BIRDS AND/OR EGGS. THERE IS TOO MUCH JUNK BEING PRODUCED OUT THERE AND WE DO NOT WANT ANY PART OF IT. TOO MANY PEOPLE OUT THERE SAY THEY HAVE SO AND SO'S BIRDS AND LET ME JUST SAY IT IS NOT THE SAME UNLESS YOU PURCHASE DIRECTLY FROM THE SOURCE ITSELF !!!!! WHILE A BREEDER USES THE APA STANDARDS AS AN AIDE IN SELECTION OF FUTURE BREEDERS .........EACH OF US AS BREEDERS ESTABLISH OUR OWN STANDARDS........AS WE KNOW SOME BREEDERS HAVE HIGHER STANDARDS THAN OTHERS. This is what establishes the quality produced by good breeders and the qualities of those that have lower standards producing QUANTITY OVER QUALITY and by producing numerous types of breeds. We breed only QUALITY splash, blacks,White and nicely laced blue Jersey Giants with exceptionally nice lacing! Please note that our baby chicks come from quality BREEDER AND APA Quality birds, however with this being said we can not guarantee "Show" birds. Expect to have possible pet, breeder, and our APA show bird types just as the case if you are raising any other species. Some birds will turn out nicer than others.
Honesty is always the best policy! If you show respect you will get respect!
