Chickens

We are a small hatchery that breeds our own parent flocks – something that is very rare!  We do Production Breeding, the method that farmers used to use to preserve the ability of each breed to produce eggs or meat well enough to earn their keep.

Did you know that virtually none of the large hatcheries (Rochesters, McMurray’s, etc.) do any breeding? They buy parent flocks from two large businesses in the States that crank out the feather sexable parent stock without any selection. This is the reason that ‘hatchery chicks’ are widely regarded as poor quality. Not ours!

Each of our breeds is the product of 5 to 20 years of production breeding. You will find our chicks robust and more productive than any other heritage chicks you have raised!
