Why the different names and prices of birds on the website?
The different names are the brand names of the hatcheries and breeders farms that produce the chicks. For example CHI, Zartech, etc. Despite the sometimes similar breeds, the different prices are fixed by the different hatcheries just as different petrol stations sell the same petrol at different pump prices. The quality of chicks are not too different.
What is the minimum quantity one can order?
The minimum quantity order is 50 for chicks, 10 for turkey poults and ducklings. When the quantity of turkey poults and ducklings are less than 30 you will have to pay a surcharge for a carton that will be communicated to you by the sales representative.
