Delivery Risk

Delivery is deemed to take place when the goods are delivered to the Customer's nominated address, whereupon the risks of loss, breakage and all damage and all other risks shall pass to the Customer.

Errors and Omissions

Laughing Hens makes every effort to ensure that all prices and descriptions quoted in its catalogue and on its website are correct and accurate.

Laughing Hens's liability in that event will be limited to the return of any money the Customer has paid in respect of the order. In the case of a manifest error in relation to price, the Customer will be entitled to purchase the goods by paying the difference between the quoted price and the correct price, as confirmed in writing by Laughing Hens after the manifest error has been discovered.
