first of all everyone who reads this thank you for stopping by. I have been thinking this over for years I would like to start a chicken hatchery. I know very well there will be naysayers but I'm just looking for information so please be kind. I have some questions, if any of you know the answers well its much appreciated. is it possible to create an incubator room instead of purchasing an incubator? Theoretically you could control the rooms temp at 99.5, right? Wondering if this is common or whati ncubators are used? Where do all the supplies come from, searching online the chick boxes are very expensive, where do hatcheries find suppliers for less? How do the chicks go from hatching into the boxes? I dont know why but this part always gets me thinking. Whats the best way to get the chicks into the box? how is it done? any in and outs of the business you would like to share would be so appreciated. I am not planning on doing this next year or anything but want to really start doing my research. pointing me in the right direction will earn you some karma lol What are the inspections like? I know they test the eggs and chicks occassionally, what do I have to worry about here? I'm sure I will think of more questions. Anyone who knows details of hatcheries please share with the class I know I have always been interested how they work even before wanting to start one.
