About the Chicks
All chicks come from a small hatchery called Belt Hatchery located in Fresno. All chicks are sexed to be female. The hatchery guarantees that 90% of the sexed chicks will be female. If you want to be absolutely sure to not get any roosters, get the Red Sex-Linked or Black Sex-Linked; they are 100% guaranteed to be female. The chicks are not vaccinated. The Hatchery has sold thousands of chicks for 9 years and have not had a problem or reason to (no complaints from customers). Chicks are $5 each.
At 11am of the day you pick up the chicks, there will be a short 10 minute orientation about chicks and you will be given a handout with the basics. If you’ve never raised chicks before, it is highly recommended that you come to this orientation, so you get off to a good start.
Chick Starter Kit
The Hatchery will also sell a chick starter kit that has everything you need to start off your chicks: brooder lamp and bulb, chick waterer and feeder, and chick food. They will give you a discount if you pick up the full kit from them. You will also need a large, deep cardboard box to house them in and shredded newspaper to use as bedding.
Sign Me Up!
