Hoover's Hatchery Buff Orpington Chickens, 10 Count Baby Chicks is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 218.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dead Chicks I’m an experienced chick owner. I lost 6 out of 10 in 5 days. The chicks were kept properly warm, clean water and food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chicks arrived on time and all accounted for. This was my first time buying live animals. Everything went great though. I did call in to TSC because I wasn't sure of the day they would be shipped but the lady who picked up the phone was extremely kind and helpful. It was a great experience all around. And despite my chicks being shipped from Minnesota to Georgia they were all alive.

Are they vaccinated?

Asked by: DThom
Chicks shipped are not vaccinated. There is a possibility in the future to allow this online

Are the chicks vaccinated?

Asked by: Giselle
Chicks ordered online are not vaccinated for mareks or cocci. If you wish to protect for cocci you may feed a medicated feed

Do you sell the fertilized eggs so I could hatch them at home? May be a silly question. Also, I’m looking for just 2, do you sell in quantities less than 10?

Asked by: CityFarmer85
Currently fertilized eggs are not available on the website but it is a good suggestion. Please look for opportunities to purchase in the future

Do the hens go broody?

Asked by: east272
Buff Orpingtons do have the reputation as being good setters. Most are not broody but because of the nature of this trait from time to time do show signs of it
