Index of American and Canadian Poultry Hatcheries
Looking for chicks? Find a hatchery in your U.S. state or Canadian province!
There are hundreds of chicken hatcheries in North America. Chickens in hatcheries are typically artificially inseminated. The hens then lay fertile eggs which are thoroughly cleaned and inspected before incubation. The mechanical incubators, capable of incubating hundreds of fertile eggs at a time, automatically control the eggs’ temperature and humidity until they hatch at 21 days of incubation. After the fertile chicken eggs hatch, the chicks are raised to several days of age before they are processed for shipment to backyard hobbyists and commercial chicken farms.
