Live Birds at the Feed & Seed

Read about our live bird offerings for Spring 2023, below!

Chick Orders are Closed for 2023
Live chicks will be available for purchase in store!
Thank you!

How to place an order:

Come see us at the Feed & Seed at 4 Coffin Lane in Berwick, Maine. We have order forms on hand and can help answer questions about the breed offerings, along with the right feed and equipment you may need for your flock!

What breeds are available?

We like both productive flocks and ones that are simply there to bring ornamental joys. We will be offering a selection of egg layers, meat birds, and ornamental bantams. Please visit the Feed & Seed to see our order form!

We will offer a second round of chicken orders later in the spring for more layers and broilers (along with our turkeys and geese)!

Missed out this round? Looking for traditional broilers or familiar red laying hens? Stay tuned for our second round of orders!

When are orders due by?

We are asking that all orders for Spring 2023 chicks, ducklings, and guinea hens are submitted no later than 02/17/2023!

When can I order turkeys? Geese?

We will offer another round of bird orders after this first round, and it will include turkeys, geese, broiler chickens, and more egg layers - end of February.

When do the birds come in?

Once orders are placed with the hatchery, we will have an updated "expecting" date for your baby birds! We will reach out via e-mail, call, and text using the contact information you provide on the order form to keep you up to speed with your order!

Important Notes:

Live bird orders are non-refundable. Customers accept the birds in the condition that they are received in from the Hatchery.  Some breeds will come sexed (hens only), while others are straight run (males and females). Dirigo Ranch Feed & Seed (DRFS) is not liable for the condition of the birds when the arrive from the hatchery.  The DRFS family will care for the birds upon arrival as best they can, using years of experience in poultry care, and the same products that we offer for you to bring home with your birds. 

Customers will be contacted using the information provided on the order form, when the birds are on their way, and when they have arrived. Customers must pick up their birds within two days of their arrival at the Feed & Seed. Unclaimed birds will be made available for purchase to other customers if they are not picked-up within two days. 
 Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns!
