This page provides you with four different options for purchasing chicken-size shrink bags. Our chicken bags are 10” x 16” and will easily package dressed birds up to 6 pounds. With some extra effort, the bags will accommodate dressed birds up to seven pounds. For chickens that weigh 7 pounds or more, we recommend our small turkey-size bags.
Please note that all the prices on this page include the cost of shipping. There is no additional charge for shipping (unless you live in Alaska or Hawaii and order a 1,000-box). For more specific information about shipping, including shipping to Canada, please Click This Link.
Our Shrink Bag "Easy Kits" include shrink bags, zip-ties and 2" x 2" blank labels with freezer adhesive. Prices include Priority shipping to any US address.
If you are a home-scale poultry producer, or you are new to shrink bags, you might want to consider getting one of our “Easy Kits” as pictured above. These kits contain 10” x 16” poultry shrink bags along with 4” zip-ties and 2” x 2”, white, peel-and-stick freezer adhesive labels. You supply the hot water and chickens, and our Easy Kits make shrink bagging easy.
To order, simply choose a quantity from the drop-down menu below and click the “Add to Cart” button. All Easy Kits are shipped by US Postal service Priority Mail and prices below include the cost of shipping.
No zip ties. No freezer labels. Just bags.
We sell "just bags" in packages of 25. If you want to purchase just bags (no zip ties and no freezer labels), you can do so with the drop-down menu options below.
You will notice that quantity options go up to 300 bags. That is how many we can fit into a USPS Flat Rate Priority box. Therefore, if you want, for example, 500 shrink bags, you need to order 300 bags, then order another 200. Your order would then be shipped to you in two Priority boxes. This system of packaging and selling makes it easier for us to get your order shipped out promptly.
Uncounted Box of 1,000
This is your most economical option.
We receive shrinkbags from our supplier in boxes of 1,000. Then we count out 50 bags at a time and repackage them. Counting and repackaging takes a lot of time. Time is money. If you purchase an uncounted box of 1,000 chicken bags (10" x 16"), that means we don't have to count them, and we can pass the savings on to you. But there is a little hitch...
The actual number of bags in the boxes is sometimes an even 1,000, but it is sometimes also a few bags more, or less. The count is never off a lot. Just a few, one way or the other.
Also, unlike with the previous purchasing options, we do not ship 1,000-boxes by USPS Priority mail. Instead, we ship by UPS Ground. The price below includes the cost of shipping to anywhere in the lower 48 states. Be sure to give us your street address for UPS delivery.
For deliveries to Alaska and Hawaii, we will send you a PayPal invoice for the additional cost of shipping via USPS Priority (Not UPS) after we get your order. Or, contact us first and we can send you an invoice for the whole order with additional cost of shipping included. Herrick@PlanetWhizbang.com
Uncounted Box of 1,000
With Freezer Labels & Zips
This is the same 1,000-box offered in Option #3 above. But 1,000, 2" x 2" blank freezer adhesive labels, and 1,000 zip ties are included.
Shipping details are exactly the same as explained in Option #3.
