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.
If you want to order chicks online, I recommend checking out Cackle Hatchery. I’ve used them before, and I can’t fault their service from placing an order to receiving my chicks.
If you can’t find what you’re looking for from the above hatcheries and farm, you should check out the Colorado Poultry and Fowl for Sale Facebook Group.
It’s a good place to find second-hand chicken-related stuff, like coops, feeders, and other bits and pieces too. As well as a great place to make friends with other fellow backyard chicken keepers.
Look for NPIP Certified Hatcheries
You may have noticed some businesses selling poultry advertising themselves as “NPIP Certified”.
NPIP stands for the National Poultry Improvement Plan and is a voluntary certification poultry sellers can take to demonstrate they are testing their flock for diseases.
The program is overseen by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). It sets a high standard, and although it’s not required by law I always look for this as it shows the business cares about their flock.
It’s added assurance that you won’t get it you buy from another backyard poultry keeper and is worth the extra money in my opinion.
Some Tips When Buying Baby Chicks
If you’re buying chicks for the first time, here are some pointers and tips to keep in mind:
- First of all, check the local laws where you live to make sure you can keep chickens and if there are any restrictions.
- Safe in the knowledge that you’re allowed to go pick up some chicks, go with a reputable hatchery that you like the look of.
- When you see your chicks, check them over carefully for any signs of dirt or discharge around their eyes, nostrils, and vent.
- Also, pay close attention to how they are breathing. Anything less than normal, such as labored breathing or holding their mouthes open – this is a red flag.
- Ask about what vaccinations they’ve had and what the breeder recommends you do after you take them home if anything.
- Take your new chicks home and introduce them to their new living quarters!
