    I am considering ordering from Welp Hatchery. I am going to order cochins and my brother would like speckled sussex and blue laced red wyandottes. If anyone has any pictures, please post them so we can know exactly what we would be getting. Thanks.

    I don't have any of the breed you would want to buy, but I can tell you that I have ordered at least 2,000 chickens from Welp Hatchery and only had like 4 deaths, very good healthy birds, also lay well and some of the chicens I bought from them placed 1st at my state fair.

    I found some other pictures of the stock, but we don't have Cochins or Wyandottes from Welp.

    I live in IA and asked Welp about picking up chicks and got this reply: "We hatch the Cornish rocks here at the hatchery, but all other breeds ship directly to you." That would make me think that they get their other breeds from another hatchery and ship from there to you. Just FYI.

    I have been extremely happy with the customer service, pricing, and the quality of the birds. And yes, I was well aware when I ordered a year ago, that Welp would probably use Privett to ship from based on other information found around the internet at the time. It was a major deciding factor, knowing they were one of the closest hatcheries to me.

    The zip code that the shipment originated at was a NM zip. Privett had higher prices overall if we ordered directly through them and a harder to navigate website. I will not hesitate to order through Welp again. I ordered over the phone with Welp, and the were friendly and helpful with my myriad of questions about ordering for a large group.
