From mid-February until the end of June, we have day-old female chicks for sale each week. Chick orders typically arrive on Thursday mornings from a hatchery in Iowa. They are driven up by postal truck overnight to the Twin Cities the day they hatch. All chicks are vaccinated for Marek's disease. Plan to order at least one week in advance of your desired delivery date.  DUE TO HIGH DEMAND WE HAVE NONE OR VERY FEW EXTRA CHICKS ON CHICK DAYS, it is best to pre-order in advance if you want specific breeds on specific dates.  Plan for the chicks to be inside, under a brooder lamp, for about six to eight weeks before your chickens will be ready to live outside. 

For your chick pick ups all chick orders will include the $2 chick carrier box to help maintain social distancing during Covid.

Here is a chick care sheet to help get you started.  

At Egg|Plant you will find everything you need for raising chicks and keeping backyard chickens: brooder lamps and bulbs, feed and bedding, supplements, feeders and waterers in various sizes, books, treats, and even heating options for winter. See more about what we have in the store on our chicken keeping supplies product page.

Every September there's a Twin Cities Chicken Coop Tour for chicken owners to show off their coops and where fellow chicken enthusiasts or future chicken owners can chat about chickens, trade ideas and share knowledge. It's a free, self-guided tour of coops thanks to volunteers who generously open their lives and yards to share their chicken-keeping experiences. This year, we will offer an in-person option and a virtual tour option.
