Rated 5 out of 5 by from You can't beat the price and quality I ordered 10 day-old cocks on August 13 and twelve healthy, active chicks arrived at my front door in the morning on Aug 17. Not a one has died. It's now Aug 31 and the basically black chicks (three with white-spotted breasts) are twice as big, friendly (they follow me around), and robust. I couldn't ask for a better offer. I plan to try other breeds as space allows.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good deal... I ordered 10 but received 12 chicks. I prayed to the Lord that my chicks would all arrive alive. They did. Thank you Jesus. But after 24 hours 1 died. The post office did not call me to tell me that my chicks had arrived. Instead they delivered them. I was off from work that day so I was home to receive them when the mail carrier arrived expectantly. I had their pen, heat lamp, and food already ready when they arrived. It's been almost a week now since I got them. Everything's going good. I like the low minimum quantity amount, 10. Hoover's Hatchery requires a minimum of 15 if ordering on their Web site. So far I've had a good overall experience.

how long before I can put my baby chicks outside in a coop?

Asked by: gec315
Generally when the chicks are fully feathered around 8-10 weeks and if the temperature outside in 65-70 degrees you may transition them
