ABOUT VALLEY FARMS HATCHERY

 

Valley Farms Hatchery started out as a hobby farm in 2012, when a 14 year old named Ryan Kelsey realized he could hatch chickens and sell them. What started out as a kid hatching 10-15 chicks a month in 2012, has grown to a company with a hatchery in Alabama and Minnesota as well. Both locations are operated by Valley Farms Hatchery and the same Ryan Kelsey that started the business in 2012.

 

Since starting the business Ryan has graduated high school as well as college, where he pursued his lifetime dream of being a Funeral Director and Embalmer. Even though being very active at a local funeral home, Ryan still manages Valley Farms Hatchery and handles all operations of both locations. Our hatchery managers answer most of the phone calls, but Ryan still talks to several of our regulars! On hatch days, transfer days, and setting days, a small crew will come in at each location to sort chicks, set eggs, and transfer eggs to the hatchers for hatching. On hatch day all hands are on deck at both hatcheries. We try to get all orders out and to our regional USPS hubs by 5p.m., but we have until 8p.m. to have the newly hatched chicks there.

While we specialize in White Broilers, Red Broilers, Brown Egg Layers, and White Egg Layers. We offer over 120 other breeds ranging from Bantams, Rare Breeds, Heritage Egg Layers, Ducks, Geese, Turkeys, Guineas, and more with the help of some great partner hatcheries! Our largest market is for the average backyard family flock, just looking for a few birds to produce some meat and eggs. Rather you are looking for three baby chickens or 3,000, we have the ability to provide you with the best poultry you can buy at a fair market price.

If you have any questions about our hatchery, please call or email us. During spring months, if phone lines are busy, send us an email. We will get back with you as soon as possible!
