True North Heritage Hatchery started out as a co-operative effort between 4 old friends. We hadn't known each other long, but we were all really old! Old enough to remember the era before commercial layers and broilers, and before Canada sold out the last of our primary chicken producers to foreign corporations.
Our breeder flocks are not in sealed, environmentally controlled barns. They have fresh air, sunshine and large outdoor runs. They enjoy a normal chicken life.
We sell only breeds that have been restored to genetic health by Production Breeding. We evaluate growth and laying records. Only the best.
Each livestock breed evolved to fill a purpose, not to win ribbons in a show. We target the production traits of each chicken breed. Good utility is not a fad; it will save them from extinction.
