    Anyone have any good or bad experiences they want to share about Welp hatchery?

    Would you order them (again)?

    Thank you,
    Misty

    No problem... [​IMG]

    But maybe that means you have experience with them on the chicken side of things... Just want to know if this is a good hatchery for poultry (though I am thinking pekin duck personally.)

    All input is appreciated!

    I got Bourbon Red turkeys from Welp in 2009. They were healthy and did very well. I ordered ducks from then in 2010 and again, all arrived healthy and did well. I also made an order that I later had to cancel and they were nice about that and didn't give me any trouble over it, so I rate both their shipping and customer service highly.

    I initially stated that they drop shipped from Metzer Farms, as do like 7 different hatcheries...but then found out they have their own flock.

    I have got 2 chickens from them (through my feed store) and they seem to be healthy, robust, chickens. I would say MMH is better though....

    Edited to fix errors...

    I don't have any experience with their ducks, but they sold me some very nice Australorps. Calm, friendly, healthy, laid lots of eggs... just what I would expect.
