Country Hatchery was founded in 1965 by my dad with one small incubator and a big dream. Actually, it was a 4-H project, and he was a Sophomore in High School at the time. He made his own catalogs and placed a few advertisements in farm papers. Soon, orders were coming in and his business was going and growing.
Over the years, Dad says it seems as if he hatched everything. That was when he was younger and more active in the business. Now I have become General Manager but Dad still helps at times here and there in the hatchery.
We start our hatch day very early. It's still dark outside, but the babies in our hatchers are chirping to get out of the incubator trays and start their lives with their new owners. And our customers are very anxious to get the babies, so our day begins. We will take several thousand babies out of the hatch trays, cull and grade and soon the babies are in a box to either be picked up or mailed. Sometimes they are mailed across the entire country! When we finish with our work, it's dark again outside. We've spent the entire day doing what we love--working at Country Hatchery, Inc., and we go home knowing that tomorrow we will make our customers smile and be proud of their newly-arrived babies.
Please remember, I very much want to serve you as a customer; and want you to know that here at Country Hatchery we do everything as chemically free as the State of Oklahoma will allow us to be and still be a National Poultry Improvement Plan Participant and Licensed Commercial Hatchery.
We ship all over the United States except for Hawaii and Guam. We also ship to Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
Thanks for your interest in our family owned and family operated business--Country Hatchery, Inc.

Here I am checking on one of our many New Natureform Incubators. We have State-of-the-Art Hatching Equipment which incubates all eggs at the proper temperature, maintains the proper humidity and turns the eggs automatically every hour.
Here are Michael and me preparing to set some eggs in one of our New Natureform Incubators.
Working with my Dad and my brother Michael every day is great. We get to do what we love, produce quality poultry for customers just like you.
