    Hi
    I was wondering and looking for feed back about Welp Hatchery? I am going to be placing an order for 50 to 100 cornish rock broilers and was interested in how your purchases were handled and if you would buy from them or which hatchery you like. What I like about them is the free shipping and the prices are reasonable. I live in Maine so if yo know of any place closer that would also be appreciated.
    thanks
    Ken

    We get all our meat birds from welp and have been very happy with them. No problems at all.

    I only get my CX from Welp, and I live in Alaska... minimal to zero dead-loss in shipping, and they're healthy chicks. We just processed 25 of them at 10 weeks old and they averaged over 5# each dressed out... I love them.

    I've received 3 orders of Cornish X's this year from Welp and am very satisied. My first batch are 7 weeks and are between 6-7lbs. Out of 78 meaties, I've only had 3 losses. I ordered 3 batches of 25 and they sent 1 extra each time so I'm still even [​IMG] Good communication and customer service. I've also gotten turkeys and ducks from them. Very healthy looking birds. Only thing is I can't compare them to any other hatchery because they were the first hatchery I ordered from and they've kept my business. The shipping included idea is a nice feature too!

    I got some cornish rock broilers from them in April and some barred rocks and white rocks in May. All arrived alive and healthy and exactly when promised. I would buy from them again.
