With all the excitement about chicks in full swing many are deciding where to get chicks for starting a new flock or adding to an established flock. I personally hatched a few of my own, purchased from Tractor Supply, and shipped chicks from Meyer Hatchery. I have so many isolated brooders in full swing there is almost no room left to move. Which is fun for me. In about a months time the weather will have warmed and the chicks will begin integrating and joining the main flock. At that time, hopefully, I will also have a new set of chicks emerging from the incubator. Along with the new hatchlings I am looking at a couple other hatcheries. One that is local with a small selection and another that will need to ship chicks across country. (Striving for some diversity for future bloodlines.) There are a multitude of hatcheries to choose from: Murray McMurray, Meyer, Ideal, etc. A new one was recently brought to my attention, Valley Hatchery. I have looked over their website and the variety of breeds a good size. I have yet to encounter any reviews for this particular hatchery. If you have worked with them and have some valuable insight I would much appreciate your advice. If you are partial to another hatchery then, I would love to hear about it. Please share.
