REFUNDS AND RESTOCKING FEES

Refunds WILL be honoured on ‘change of mind’ items as per Consumer Law, as long as the items have not been dispatched to the customer. This is obviously as once it leaves our hands the items cannot be easily brought back to our possession without further costs being incurred.

Items that have been dispatched or picked up by couriers from Suburban Chooks will need to be returned to us (at the cost of the purchaser) before refunds will be returned. We also require tracking information for returned items to be forwarded to us, just as we provide tracking information to you when we send items out.

Customers who request a refund will be refunded their full amount MINUS a 20% restocking fee. Given that we are honouring change of mind items (which a lot of businesses don’t) we hope you are understanding of this matter.

By law, refunds can only be given using the same method that payment was made. To clarify, if you pay via Paypal, your refund will be made via Paypal. It is illegal for us to refund in any other way.

If you have paid via Afterpay, you will need to contact both the seller (us) and Afterpay to confirm the process. This will be dependant on whether you have paid any installments towards your item etc.

REFUNDS FOR ALLFARM MAINTENANCE/TOUGH EGG PECK BLOCK

Tough Egg and Maintenance Peck Blocks are not a toy/stimulation product that can be hung like other products on the market for smaller pet birds (budgies etc). Due to the hugely different ingredients in these peck blocks, they can be very crumbly and fall apart easily (hence the inability to hang them for stimulation as a ‘peck toy’). Also, due to the rough handling that is an unfortunate reality of Australian freight carriers, it is not unusual for this item to arrive and turn from the initial block shape (in the packaging) to a bag of crumbled grains and other ingredients. This does not detract from any nutritional value or enjoyment the chickens will have eating it, is it purely a shape difference. As such, refunds will not be given if the product arrives and does not retain it’s original block shape.
