Frequently Asked Questions
 
Are your chick house with or around adult chickens?
Why do your chicks cost more than local feed store chicks?

The feed stores sell hatchery stock., our birds are not. All of our birds are Standard Bred, potential show quality stock. What that means, is that our birds came from quality breeder/show stock and that we continue to breed to the breed Standard.  The difference is hatchery stock are not bred to the breed Standard/SOP. Hatchery chickens often have other breeds like White Leghorn mixed in to boost egg production, and are usually smaller, can be more flightily and have unknown temperaments. That is also the reason why they typically don't look like the breed should look like. Big commercial hatcheries are all about production and quantity over quality . Temperament is another issue you may find with hatchery chicken. A small breeder like myself do not put up with a mean rooster. As a breeder we also for temperament, removing any aggressive birds. This is many times overlooked in a big hatchery operation.
