Shipping & Delivery & Returns/Refunds

Shipping is available , please choose the shipping option at checkout. Shipping is available by Canada Post and will be sent regular mail. If you absolutely want seed shipped please call the store. 613-475-9510

We do not ship outside of Canada.

We don't as a rule ship seed. Because of the weight of seed your shipping cost would likely exceed the cost of the seed itself. Any orders with seed with shipping will be cancelled and refunded.

Porch Pick up available with online and telephone orders. We can designate a time for pick up if you prefer. Please call us 613-475-9510 to schedule this. Otherwise wait for the email that says that your order is ready. You can come anytime during business hours to in store or the walk up window for pick up.

No lockdown: Delivery available free within 25km (please check google maps with actual route, as initial km quote is as the crow flys and not actual km) with $75 minimum order. Under the minimum order a $10 fee may apply. Please call the store. 613-475-9510.

For Deliveries outside the 25km (at owners discretion)(please check google maps with actual route, as initial km quote is as the crow flys and not actual km) a $15 fee will apply with a $75 minimum order. Please call the store. As everyone is aware the price of gas is going up making it difficult for all of us. Please call the store. 613-475-9510

Delivery fees may change as gas increases and may not be properly reflected in this paragraph as being a small store, we are always in a state of catch up on the website.

Timing of deliveries is also at the owners discretion for efficiency of mileage, and managing other deliveries. We don't have a delivery employee. It's me, Bobbi, the owner, or Andrew my fiancé when time and space allows.

During lockdowns: Delivery during lockdowns is free within 25km, timing of delivery is at the discretion of the owner of The Birdhouse.
