Chick Days Event Update.
We wanted to provide an update our Chick Pick Ups!
We are still on track for Chicks! We will notify you once they arrive, have gone through a small 2-3 day quarantine window, and are ready to pick up. We will contact everyone with times and location to pick up chicks once they have safely arrived.
Only two, trained employees will be handling your little baby birds to ensure their safety. As a reminder your chicks are coming from an NPIP certified clean facility and will be vaccinated.
Our hatchery this year, Hoover Hatchery, is committed to preventing the spread of COVID-19. They are already a closed facility, meaning that they do not allow any outside vendors, customers or visitors within their hatchery facility. Additionally, they employ the use of a truck wash station which all vehicles entering the hatchery property must pass though. They are confident that they currently exceed most biosecurity standards, however, they have taken additional steps to ensure that they are doing all that that can to keep us from contributing to the spread of COVID-19.
We are committed to the safety of our employees and our many loyal customers.
We thank you all for your continued support and greatly value your business! Together, we will all get through this.
