If you're like me you try to do business with hatchery's near you so the animals don't have to travel as far. That is why I chose Meyer Hatchery when ordering ducklings to add to my flock. They are located only two hours from me. Much to my surprise, after they shipped, I found out that they were coming from California. I called Meyer Hatchery to find out why. I was told that they don't keep everything at their Polk, Ohio location. The chicks come from Polk, Ohio, the ducks come from California and the turkeys come from somewhere else. I let them know that I chose them because of their location and that I had wished I had known about this. I couldn't find anything on their website giving this information. I am writing this post for informational purposes in the hopes that others will find it useful.
