Understand the Seamless Process of Ordering Day-Old Poultry from Valley Hatchery
Anticipating the Future: Projecting Egg Counts
At Valley Hatchery, our egg count projections are a result of a comprehensive approach, considering breed-specific capabilities, historical flock data, hatch rates, and changing environmental conditions. Availability can fluctuate, and our conservative estimates often result in more eggs than expected. If a hatch is progressing well, we increase available birds for sale. Opportunities to purchase may arise even if a breed seems sold out, so stay vigilant and seize these chances to enhance your flock.
