We are no longer shipping orders to Alaska or Hawaii due to delivery delays with USPS.
COVID-19 and how it relates to our hatchery.
It’s no secret that we are living in some strange times right now. We are open and operating as normal. We do not expect to be shut down nor do we expect the post office to be shut down. Of course, if any of that were to change we would notify our customers. Our office has been overwhelmed with phone calls and emails. If you could not get through on our phone lines email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get back to you as fast as we can.
The viral quarantine, shut-downs, and food shortages have brewed the perfect storm for chick sales. People want to know they can continue to provide for their families and chickens check that box for a lot of individuals. With that being said we have received an astounding amount of chick orders – especially Cornish Cross Broilers.
However, it is still imperative that you practice good bio-security. Always wash your hands after handling chickens or their equipment.
Year after year, more people discover that eggs and meat they have raised themselves are tastier and healthier than most of the mass-produced products available in supermarkets. We here at The Chick Hatchery have been supplying family farmers, hobby flock owners and Feed Stores with chicks of the highest quality since 2012.
Chicks are hatched from NPIP Certified Flocks and carry minimum classifications of Avian Influenza Clean as well as Pullorum Typhoid Clean. Marek’s Vaccination is available for all Chicken Breeds for a small fee. We operate NO KILL Facilities! All Poultry are raised Humanely. Unsold Male chicks are shipped to large Amish Family Farms.
We belong to a very unique network of Breeders and Hatcheries to supply you with Superior Quality Chicks. All poultry are guaranteed to be delivered alive and in good condition on every order. Even though not all poultry will be shipped direct from our Michigan location, you will receive poultry of the highest quality. We have Shipping Points in Iowa, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania and Texas.
Hobby and small-scale family farms are, and must continue to be, a vital part of our community. We believe that keeping small farms profitable is essential to the health and stability of the community.
As always, we remind you to order early! We look forward to serving you this year and for many years to come.
We regret to to inform our customers that many orders had to be rescheduled due to the USPS Shipment Embargo that has taken effect nationwide because of the extreme unsafe weather conditions and a backlog of packages.
Orders are being rescheduled ASAP. This is a major undertaking so please expect a response in 2-3 days at most.
We will be emailing customers that will be affected by this shipping embargo with the rescheduled ship date.
