Welp Hatchery Reviews And Thoughts

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

This coming wednesday my order of 25 total chicks (14 black sexlink and 11 red stars) is being shipped. I have recently look at the forecast for next week and the weather is suppose to be 50's and raining! Will my poor babies be okay? I know that it takes approximetly 2 days for them to get here. Has anyone ordered from them? How many DOA? Or after a couple of days? And also please tell me what you think of Welp Hatchery and their chicks.. quality and pictures would be lovely. Thanks, Hannah

Three dogs, bobtailed cat- Nala, a crazy kitten-Gizmo, two goats, two 1 y/o RIR hens, 16 black and red sexlink hens, one mille fleur D'Uccle pullet, three OEGB cockerals, and our new addition, a barred rock mixed roo, 11 eggs in the incubator! Have a AQHA 5 year old horse named Dan, and a teddy bear hamster (I think thats all)

While I have no pics, I used to own a feedstore and we used Welp for years as one of our main Hatcheries for chicks.  Our store was in Ca and they shipped just fine.  Their chicks were always healthy and we never had any problems with the hatchery if any arrived DOA.  I can't really remember an exact DOA count since we delt with litteraly hundreds of chicks a year and other hatcheries, but I can tell you, with Welp DOA's were not often.  Welp is a nice hatchery and they always did right by us.

I split an order with some other people last September, we had 47 total.  They were shipped on a Wed and arrived Fri morning perfectly happy and healthy....no losses at all!  I have 12 wonderful laying hens - 6 Barred Rock and 6 Black Sexlink.  This was my first time ordering chicks and am so happy with the quality of Welps birds.  They are great girls, very friendly, come running when they here me and are good with my 3 yr old son.  I would definitely order from them again (too bad I wnt to TSC the other day  smile )  Good luck with your new babies.
