Text Box: Shipping	 
	Starting in May through July, we ship our day-old chicks "per box" of 125, our minimum order to ship. Smaller orders may be picked up at the farm. The price is reduced for over 1000 pheasant chicks, further reduced for orders 5000 and 10,000+.  
	Shipping is additional and increases per Post Office costs.  We now must use the www.usps.com postage calculator to figure your Express Mail or Priority postage by weight and zone. This increase is one of the reasons why we would like to arrange truck deliveries on larger orders, or combined orders within 750 miles of Elkhorn Farms. Also consider ringneck pheasant adult- or partially-adult birds. Delivery prices vary on quantity, distance and the relative cost of fuel but generally is priced $.75 per mile, round trip. 	
	Please remember that our shipping/ pickup days for pheasant chicks are Wednesdays, except for holidays like the 4th of July. 
	We strongly recommend Express Mail for day-old chicks with its one- or two-day delivery guarantee. We DO NOT recommend Priority Mail for pheasant chick deliveries to any but our neighboring states. We will only ship Priority with the understanding that we cannot guarantee the timeliness of arrival, or the viability of the pheasant chicks. The choice, responsibility and liability are totally yours.

The gamebird industry is in a great position to grow with the need for hunt clubs greater than ever as more land is put into commercial development. Additionally, many of the western states have seen weather-related devastation to their established populations, requiring a recharge of gamebirds to keep the hunting industry healthy. Opportunities abound as never before. We believe we are finally seeing relief in feed and fuel prices, can breathe slightly easier this season, so we are holding our prices to serve you better! Please note, though, that all prices are subject to change.

However, get contracts on birds! Solid commitments work both ways to benefit the whole industry, 1.) by allowing the producer to know what sales to anticipate, and 2.) by assuring the end user the birds he expects.  We are seeing the small supplier going out of business, and the “leaner-meaner” cost conscious grower getting more streamlined and efficient.

We have published our 2014 chick and birds prices with the understanding that prices are subject to change due to feed, fuel and further conditions affecting costs. We have endeavored to keep prices down as always, and were able to hold them at the 2013 level.

The threat to our hunting heritage with gun control grabs has increased the action on our hunt club, and others that we supply. Keep vigilant and join the North American Gamebird Association (NAGA) for the support and political clout it gives. Now more than ever we need to band together to keep our businesses, our freedoms and our guns. (www.mynaga.org)

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Thank you for your interest in our ringneck pheasant adults or day-old chicks. Our pheasants are a Chinese Ringneck with a slight Mongolian Cross, coloring up as adults with blue-green backs, white rings and dark burgundy body feathers. Some darker variations in coloration (“blacks”) appear infrequently, and are in great demand. We do not actively breed for that strain, and cannot predict how many we can provide. Since the process is time-intensive, we charge a  surcharge of $.10 per chick to sort these.

             Elkhorn hens dress out as adults at about 2 to 21/2 pounds providing enough for the pot, while being highly flighty for good hunting. They are used regularly on our own and nearby hunt clubs, as well as shipped across the country with similar results, dependant on feeding practices.

 

             Fuel and feed prices have received much recent focus, and rightly so. These costs impact your raising and pricing strategies “big time.” We wish you the wisdom of Solomon in figuring these issues out.

             Shipping costs have also increased and will most likely continue to do so. Please note we can no longer estimate and extrapolate shipping costs, needing to use the www.usps.com postage calculator to figure your actual rate. If you need assistance in this area, please feel free to contact us. In the east, or closer zones, the costs seem less, and to the west, further away, they have increased. We will do our best to see you get them in a timely manner.

 

             See our Basic Care & Keeping page for additional information regarding raising your birds. While we are willing to advise, you alone can care for your birds the way they should be tended. Educate yourself now about raising birds by reading  Gamebird Propagation by late author John Mullin, or Dr. Swartz’ book Grower’s Reference on Gamebird Health.  There are numerous gamebird educational seminars available through NAGA or regional associations.

     We cannot truck deliver adult or partially adult birds longer than 16 hours away, so delivery west of the Mississippi is not available.
