In the past we did not take deposits for our chicks, and our wait list was on a first come, first served basis. That could get quite tricky when the first people on the list could not make up their mind which chick they wanted while others further down the list already knew their choice but had to wait to see if it would still be available.
Sometimes the first people on the list would be difficult to contact, so I began requiring a working telephone number in order to hold a place on the list.
Our new policy will be as follows:
I will keep a list of names and phone numbers in the order that people first contact me, no deposit required, and no guarantee that you will have first choice. This will be for the purpose of letting people know when I have chicks available.
Once I know I have specific chicks available for sale, people on the list will be given the opportunity to pay a deposit to reserve their chick in advance. There will also be the option to remain on the unpaid list and choose from any remaining chicks after they are ready to go.
To place a hold on any specific chick, I will require a non-refundable deposit of 50%. The arrangements for the payment of the deposit will be made through live phone conversation.
In the event that two people are interested in the same bird, it will depend on who talks to me first about arranging payment.
