Online Hatcheries

I’m a huge fan of ordering from online hatcheries. I like the convenience of being able to browse for exactly what I want, then have the chicks, hatching eggs, or chickens delivered right to my door.

The best hatchery I’ve used online is Cackle Hatchery. I found their site and customer service to be very professional and efficient, and they stock literally hundreds of different breeds.

You can check the latest availability and pricing at Cackle Hatchery by clicking here.

If you want to talk to other backyard chicken owners, and maybe some breeders or hatcheries directly I recommend checking out the Alabama Poultry Association Facebook Group.


Tips – What to Look for When Buying Chicks

Buying some baby chicks or even eggs to incubate at home is a fun and exciting experience.

You should always act with your head over your heart though. You’re buying live animals, so you need to be sure you’re dealing with a reputable breeder or hatchery you can trust.

Here are some basic guidelines to help you out:

  • Call around a few hatcheries and ask questions. You don’t have to commit to the first place you call.
  • Take a good look at their premises and how they treat their other animals to ensure they look professional.
  • Take a close look at each chicken you’re buying to ensure they’re in perfect condition.
  • Look at their vent, eyes, and nostrils for any signs of dirt or discharge.
  • Make sure they are breathing normally and not making any unusual sounds. A chick breathing with their mouth open is a sign something is wrong.
  • Ask about vaccinations and the diseases they monitor for in their flocks.
  • Check they are NPIP certified.
  • Look for reviews online, don’t be alarmed if there aren’t any though, as that’s fairly common.
  • Finally, go with your gut. If everything looks and feels right, take the chicks and introduce them to their new home.

What Does NPIP Mean for Hatcheries and Breeders?

I mentioned that you should look for an NPIP hatchery when looking to purchase birds or eggs. NPIP stands for National Poultry Improvement Plan, it’s a voluntary certification that poultry hatcheries and breeders can sign up for.

It’s basically a standard that means they breed their birds with good practices. Such as checking for diseases, breeding them in good conditions, and so on.

It’s not a legal requirement, but it’s a highly recognized standard and one I’d expect to see from a hatchery I’m buying from.

I’ve done the best to verify the information in this post, but can’t be held responsible for any errors, omissions, or changes since publishing.
