Does anyone know of any hatcheries in Illinois? I can't seem to find any!
Hi there, A while ago I was interested in just how many hatcheries there were in the USA. I started this map. We dont have them like you out here in Australia.
I only mapped the bigger ones I found- none in your state- but plenty not far over the borders from you .
There are no hatcheries in Illinois that I know of. There use to be on near Chicago but they have closed down.
Lots of them next door in Iowa.
Its better to buy chicks out of state cause then you dont have to pay taxes , plus they can ship it to you.
Don't know about Illinois but Sandhill Preservation has a great variety and not far away in Iowa.
Here's a list of all NPIP hatcheries and breeders in Missouri.
County Line Hatchery is not far from Illinois in Iowa. Its not far off of Hwy 20. They are not your typical hatchery. It is run by 2 families that own all of their stock. The also show several of their birds. Their prices may be a little higher but the quality is there. I have several birds from their stock.
