Online Hatcheries

If you can’t find the breed of chicks you’re looking for from the hatcheries above, or a business close enough to visit, ordering online is just as good.

In fact, a lot of people prefer to order poultry online. You have instant access to just about every breed of chick you’d want, and they can usually get them shipped out pretty quickly.

Here are a few of the best online hatcheries I’m aware of. I’ve either used them myself or know people who have:

McMurray Hatchery – It’s hard to believe, but Murray McMurray Hatchery has been in the poultry business for more than 100 years! They usually have a decent range of chicks and hatching eggs in stock, as well as backyard flock equipment.

Cackle Hatchery – Cackle Hatchery is also one of the longest-serving poultry businesses in the U.S. At the time of writing this they have more than 200 varieties of poultry available for mail order, including some interesting and rare breeds.

Stromberg’s Chickens – Stromberg’s is another online hatchery that I’ve only heard good things about. They have a huge range of breeds and equipment to choose from. They also produce some useful blog content which is helpful for new backyard flock owners.

Care Tips for Baby Chicks

It’s surprising how little baby chicks need and how easy they are to care for. I’m not being biased, that’s the truth!

Here is the basic equipment you’ll need and some tips to help you care for your baby chicks once you have them:

Housing/Brooder – Chicks don’t live outside in a coop until they are 7-8 weeks old. For the first 6-7 weeks, they need to be kept safe and warm until they’ve grown their juvenile feathers.

The easiest way to do this is by picking up a brooder. A brooder is basically a small enclosed space for chicks.

Feeding – Hold back on the treats. For the first few weeks, all you should feed your baby chicks is a starter feed. Starter feeds are specially formulated to provide all the good nutrition young chicks need to grow up big and strong.

Drinking Water – You’ll need to provide clean drinking water that is easily accessible. 

Warmth – This is important, chicks need to be kept in an environment that’s around 95-100 degrees for their first week. You can then start to reduce the temperature by 5 degrees week until they’re a month old. 

I just want to add that chicks grow up so fast. Enjoy every minute of those first few weeks, because before you know it they’ll be in your backyard scratching around for food.
