Black Friday Flock November 26, 2013

It’s that time of year! Baby chick ordering for 2014 has begun at My Pet Chicken. Before you leave for Black Friday shopping, you may want to reserve your Black Friday Flock.


Some of the rarer breeds (or preferred colors) of baby chicks sell out fast! Black Copper Marans, for example, are often all reserved within just a few weeks of being made available.  For instance, as I check this morning, I see that they’re already sold out until MID-MAY of 2014. That will change quickly, too, so if there are any special breeds you’re just dying for, you’ll want to place your order soon.

Now, maybe.

Maybe you shouldn’t even wait until Black Friday to reserve your Black Friday Flock. Consider this a friendly suggestion to get a, um… a sort of Greyish Tuesday Flock reserved.

Here’s a quick list of the Top Ten Breeds that tend to sell out fast. If the breed you want is on this list, be sure to make your reservation soon:

  1. Silkies of all colors, but particularly White Silkies
  2. Blue and Wheaten Ameraucanas
  3. Salmon Faverolles
  4. Speckled Sussex
  5. White Sultans
  6. Welsummers
  7. Chanteclers
  8. Buckeyes
  9. Frizzle bantams
  10. Mille Fleur bantams


Black Friday Flock–do you really want to wait that long? Place your baby chick order today to guarantee you get the flock you want next year!

This is insane. I’ve been wanting blue and Wheaton Amerucanas for some time now. I can’t believe that your sold out befor the season has started. What does a person have to do to get these breeds from you? Are people on some sort of waiting list?

We don’t have a waiting list–and don’t worry, you may still be able to make reservations! As the season progresses and we’re better able to estimate how many eggs our flocks are laying (and thus how many chicks we’ll have), we do update quantities. The first reservations for the upcoming year are always based on the most conservative estimates possible. Just keep your eyes open.
