Shipping Policy

 We ship within the Continental US, and export where allowed.  Shipping is always contingent on the weather.

We ship USPS Priority Express mail.  

The USPS will NOT insure live birds.  They will only refund postage if the birds are more than three days late. If you have any questions regarding the USPS bird shipping policy, you can contact them through their website or call them to ask about Live Bird Shipping.

Once the box/birds leave my hands, I have no control over how the USPS will treat them.  I do not refund for dead/injured birds on arrival.

We only ship on Mondays and Tuesdays and never in a week with a Holiday In it.

We can give you the USPS estimated delivery time, but they fail to make this most of the time.  Be aware that, their tracking system is inferior and is never up to date.

We put plenty of fresh fruit in with the chicks/birds; they have food and liquid for the trip.

Shipping charges are change frequently with increases from the USPS. See our web site under shipping for current charges.

We always refund postage overages if it is more than $5.00. We also will bill for any additional postage charges over $5.00.

You can fit two adult silkies or several chicks in one box. This is subject to change with postage increases.

All chicks must be at least one month of age to ship and we prefer them to be older.

Shipping Minimum order is 2+; however, it is better to ship more chicks in a box.

In the event a product is listed at an incorrect price due to typographical error or error in pricing information received from our suppliers, Amber Waves Silkies shall have the right to refuse or cancel any orders placed for products listed at the incorrect price.

If your credit card has already been charged for the purchase and your order is canceled, Amber Waves Silkies will issue a refund to your card in the amount of the incorrect price


Amber Waves has increased our biosecurity due to the Newcastle outbreak a few years ago that quarantined most of Southern California and now the Covid pandemic. We are not doing tours or accepting any visitors for chickens currently. All Birds will be delivered in the driveway.


We vaccinate our chicks for Mareks.  Please Note that the Marek's vaccine is not 100% effective, and even treated birds may later contract Marek's if the disease is present on your property.  Marek's is quite common and often present in backyard flocks yet remains undetected because the flock is resistant to the disease. We will not replace chicks that show symptoms of Marek's after they are shipped.

Quarantine all birds received from Amber Waves should be quarantined and observed for at least 30 days before exposing them to your chicken flock.

We recommend putting Doxycycline 20% in your new birds water for seven days as a precaution.

Pickup of Birds and Tours

Pickup is by appointment only. After you purchase you silkies we will send you two emails. One on care and the other on how to make an appointment to pick up you birds. We will be delivering your bids in the driveway.

We have no minimum age or quantity for chicks picked up at Amber Waves. We are not doing any tours at the present time.


We can board birds sold for $10 per bird per month or any part of a month. Space is limited, so check for availability.

Switch Birds

Not all birds thrive, and sometimes things happen. If your bird becomes ill or sick, has a deformity we missed, or a transposed wing band we reserve the right to replace the bird with another bird; it may or may not be the same color or refund the purchase price of that one bird.

Baby chicks are very fragile; we do not replace under a month chick that dies.
