Game Bird Delivery
Ashley Game Farm can deliver game birds, chicks, poults or adults to all areas in the UK, Republic of Ireland and to France, Belgium and Italy, in our air assisted and air conditioned vehicles that are equipped for long distance travel.
Chicks are delivered nationally straight from hatching in specialist temperature controlled vehicles. The maximum delivery is 40,000 day-olds per vehicle.
Chick deliveries are conducted throughout the night to ensure drops are early in the morning to allow the chicks maximum daylight to settle in.
Pheasants and partridge chicks are delivered in specially designed cardboard, disposable, and purposely designed chick boxes, exactly the same as the French use.
Pheasant and partridge poults are delivered by 4x4 plus trailer within 100 kilometres of Ashley Game Farm.
Larger loads are delivered by truck at any further distance because of tachograph and driving rules. All trucks have fans to circulate air in the loaded compartment and we can deliver loads up to 18,000 head competitively anywhere in the UK.
Each consignment is accompanied by a delivery note, stating:
- Number of Birds Delivered
- Number Per Crate
- Number of Crates
- Time and Place of Loading Creates/Boxes
In the event that the premises of delivery are unable to accept incoming stock, every effort will be made from Ashley Game Farm to place the stock elsewhere. However, any price implications will remain the responsibility of the purchaser.
In the unfortunate event that Ashley Game Farm has a notifiable disease, and stock being culled, or a movement restriction placed, we will endeavour to refund any paid deposits on orders that have been placed. We are not responsible for any loss of revenue from the shoot.
