PLEASE READ THOROUGHLY AND PLAN YOUR BID ACCORDINGLY
The winner of this auction will receive 8 unsexed Mechelen Turkey Head day-old chicks. We will add free extra chicks if the hatch allows. The Mechelen Turkey Head is a Belgian, dual-purpose breed. This breed is related to the Malines and looks very similar to them as well. But the Mechelen Turkey Head normally are slightly larger than the Malines and should be bred to have very small combs and tiny to non-existent wattles. They normally have calm dispositions and very unique personalities. They are large-sized, and the hens will lay about 200 large, tinted eggs per year.

The winning bidder will receive a confirmation email at the close of the auction. Be prepared to receive your chicks within 1-3 days from your ship date. It is your responsibility to schedule and organize the pickup of your chicks. Please make sure your shipping address is correct on your RBA account.
The winning bidder pays $40 for shipping. We will ship the chicks via USPS Priority Express. Orders are not guaranteed to arrive overnight. We will combine orders if you win multiple auctions, if possible. Please pay promptly when the auction closes, and we will refund any unused shipping cost if we are able to combine your orders for shipping.
We cannot ship orders won at auction to Hawaii, we’re sorry! There is simply not enough time for us to apply for and obtain the required permit.
IN THE EVENT OF A SHORTAGE
If we are short on the hatch by a few chicks, we will refund you for the shortage and your order will still be shipped unless the shortage puts the shipment under our shipping minimum. If the hatch is significantly short, we will reschedule the order to a new hatch date. If you prefer to receive a breed substitution in the event of a shortage, please send us a message as soon as the auction closes.
Chicks will be vaccinated for Marek’s Disease unless you request otherwise.
