    According to their website, each chick has a air postal charge of 12 cents each, if you order under 100, an additional 7 dollar handling fee, and a 1 dollar fee per breed under 25 chicks. You can check their shipping info page and figure out if you need to pay the postal charge or not.

    Example: I ordered:

    3 varieties of brahma pullets = $3 ($1 for ea. variety)
    plus one cockerel $1 ($1 different sex)
    plus one JG $1 ($1 diff. breed)


    Plus one $7 charge for ordering less than a 1/4 box, for a total shipping charge of $12

    I don't have to pay an air shipping charge because I live in one of the Arkansas zip codes listed.
