    I'm just curious if anyone knows offhand if Privett hatchery in New Mexico is Whelp's "shipping point partner"?
    Curious if it's the same stock as Privett or from a private breeder. I am looking at ordering for next year and New Mexico is the easiest haul to the Phoenix area for shipped chicks, and I just want to know what breeds and species they ship from that location.

    Welp only raise meat birds. Normally for what I've read here, most people ordering from Welp got their chicks from Privett. Also, in several post many agree that Welp customer service is superb, however Privett hatchery, well they don't have customer service at all. You can call Welp and request your chicks to be shipped from Privett base on your location. I'm sure with excellent customer service this wouldn't be a problem. [​IMG]
