Welcome to Riverside Vines Farm

Located in Rexton, New Brunswick, Canada, our focus is breeding quality chickens for backyard flocks or breeding programs. 

We downsized our flock in 2019 so for 2020 season we only have 6 hens, and only 3 breeds. For this reason I will only be advertising available chicks or eggs on my Facebook page as they come available. Not taking pre-orders this year or wait lists.

Thanks for understanding.


We practice strict bio-security - no birds come in - and do not offer farm tours. 

Please respect this and understand that our birds are a hobby and our privacy is important. We don't have birds for sale all the time. You need to check the Facebook page for latest updates to see if anything is available.

I cannot ship to the USA. I do not ship live chicks, only hatching eggs, anywhere in Canada.


My breeding birds are kept in spacious coops, all with outdoor runs attached. All have access to clean water changed daily and free choice food, and get daily treats.

In July, when they slow down laying due to heat, they are all released to free range, and are not put back into breeding pens until December.

Terms & Conditions

CHICK INFORMATION

ALL BREEDS ARE SOLD STRAIGHT RUN. THEY CANNOT BE SEXED AS CHICKS.

*NOT taking orders for pullets*

Minimum order: 4 chicks, for chicks health. When you get 2 or 3 chicks, many times they don't thrive. They are social animals. They need warmth, company, and they also need the other chicks to learn social skills. They also encourage each other to eat/drink.

I care about my chicks having an easy transition to their new home. For this reason, I never sell day old chicks. Every chick is at least 2-3 days old when it leaves my care, to ensure there are no weak chicks or physical flaws. For bio-security reasons, I cannot take chicks back, but if a chick dies within 24 hours of purchase I will refund or replace. Proof of death is required.

I believe in breeder support, and I care about my birds long after they leave here, so if ever there is any questions at any time in their life, please contact me.

HATCHING EGG INFORMATION:

There is no guarantee on hatching eggs as there are too many variables involved. I can ship across Canada or local pick-up is an option as well. On shipped eggs, 50% hatch is considered a good hatch, although I have seen as good as 98% hatch from my shipped EE eggs before! But oftentimes, things like extreme cold temps during shipping, rough handling, and incubator issues effect hatch rates, and it happens that a very poor hatch can result. This is not my responsibility once the eggs leave my hands.

E-transfer or cash accepted. Eggs are shipped XpressPost, Priority, or Expedited, and are very well-packed.

Shipping cost is the responsibility of the buyer.

A lot of care and preparation goes into hatching eggs.

Birds from the breeding pens are healthy and vigorous, and have been separated from other breeds for at least 4-6 weeks, to guarantee pure blood. Eggs are promptly gathered, and are gently placed in a carton, and labelled accordingly. Only the strongest eggs with good shells, color and shape are selected for sale. All eggs are fresh and well-packaged.

My priority is for you to have a successful hatch with my eggs.
