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 email@example.com and we will get back to you as fast as we can.
With an early spring plus all this talk of 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 sold an astounding amount of chickens the past few days – especially Cornish Cross Broilers.
There is no evidence that COVID-19 specifically can infect chickens or other poultry.
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 California, Iowa, Michigan, Missouri, 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.
