What is the "Small Order Charge" in my shopping cart?

When you are ordering a small number of birds, it is sometimes necessary to charge a Small Order Charge (or sometimes noted as a Minimum Order Charge). This is because the order which you are placing will require additional handling and shipping care in order to safely deliver a small number of birds.

For example, we can safely ship 4 Pekin Ducklings. However, we need to send the birds in a specialized poultry box with additional insulation, add in a foam lining to prevent jarring, and include a heat pad to keep the small number of birds warm. This isn't necessary on larger orders, as the birds' communal warmth will keep the box at an acceptable temperature. Check out our Minimum Order Quantities and Small Order Charge breakdowns here.
