Click above on the baby chick hatching to learn more about our hatchery

Estes Hatchery meets the challenges of today's changing, growing poultry industry by operating on the same principles that established our success back when Charles Marion Estes began selling baby chicks in 1922: Providing top quality poultry with a "whatever it takes" customer service attitude. When you place your order with Estes Hatchery, you can feel confident that you have made the very best choice in baby chickens, turkeys, guineas, ducks, geese, and game birds.

Estes Hatchery has been in the poultry business for 84 years. We have the fourth generation of our family active in the operation of our hatchery along with many essential seasonal employees. We rely on our good standing reputation for quality and service when providing all your poultry needs. Our Midwest location is essential to the timely shipping and delivery of live birds. We carefully time our hatching with the United States Post Office delivery routes to ensure that your order reaches you promptly and your birds are under the least amount of stress possible. All orders, whether made online or by telephone, will be shipped, depending on location, either on the designated hatch day or no later than the following day. You may expect your chicks to arrive no later than three days after they leave the hatchery. If, for some reason they do not, please contact us immediately at 1-800-345-1420 or by email, (preferably by phone) Customers may also pick up their orders in person at the hatchery, in which case no minimum order requirements apply. Please always consider Estes Hatchery for all of your poultry needs as we're sure you'll like the way we do business.

Minimum Order

Due to the overall health and vitality of your baby birds upon arrival, we require a minimum live bird weight of no less than 4 pounds. Baby birds must retain the proper amount of heat for survival, so a minimum volume of birds is required for each shipment.

For example, you may order 30 guineas, bantams or pheasants; 25 chickens; 20 turkeys; 16 ducks; or 8 geese to meet the minimum. You are allowed to mix and match birds to reach the minimum weight. Weights per bird in pounds are as follows: chicks = .16, geese = .50, turkeys = .20, large duck breed = .27, small duck breed = .20 bantams = .13, pheasants = .13 and guineas = .13. Please add other live birds to your cart. Thank You
