A Family Owned Hatchery
Happy Feet Hatchery is located in beautiful Eustis, FL and specializes in hatching Large Fowl Chicken breeds. We currently offer several different gorgeous breeds and plan to continue expanding our line of breeds to provide the best possible selection to our customers. Happy Feet Hatchery officially opened on May 22, 2017 and we are proud to say that “Happy Feet” are now running around all over the state of Florida as well as a few other states, California, New York, Utah and Georgia to name a few!
We wanted to start a Hatchery here in Florida so that we could hatch year-round for our customers and provide them with a whole new Chick/Chicken buying experience. With every appointment our customers see exactly where their birds come from and can be comforted by the cleanliness of our operation and overall have a more fun buying experience! You’ll tour our brooder room full of baby chicks and our chicken tractors where we pasture raise our juveniles we have for sale, which are also supplemented with commercial feed. Our operation is solely rooted on our property meaning we only hatch from our flocks and don’t obtain hatching eggs from outside sources. This way we can ensure the health of our flocks and keep proper records.
For those that aren’t able to visit our farm, don’t worry! We hatch on a weekly basis and ship our day old baby chicks! We also have a video tour of our property on our Facebook page for those who are unable to visit! Be sure to LIKE our Facebook page as well!
Owner Happy Feet Hatchery
Happy Feet Hatchery also offers Juvenile Birds. Many customers like to purchase their birds/chickens a little older, so we try to keep a stock of juveniles available in multiple breeds as well! We sell all of our baby chicks straight run (excluding any auto-sexing or sex-linked breeds) that are less than one month old, but by raising up chicks to the juvenile stage, we are then able to sell guaranteed pullets and/or cockerels to our customers. Raising up birds to sell as juveniles was a must so we could provide a large selection of different breeds at various ages. All of our juveniles are pasture-raised in chicken tractors and are supplemented with commercial feed.
Aside from selling baby chicks and juvenile pullets and cockerels, we also sell our Farm Fresh Eggs and Hatching Eggs as well!
We pour our hearts and souls into this business every day. We do it for our animals, and we do it for our customers. We have a dream that one day, Happy Feet Hatchery will be the largest Hatchery in the Southeast. A Hatchery that allows customers to experience and see where their birds come from. A Hatchery that its first priority is the cleanliness of its operation and happiness of its animals. A Hatchery that cares about their processes and does not cast aside animals due to gender or imperfections. We want to do this bigger and better than ever seen before. Our amazing customers and supporters mean everything to us as we wouldn’t be where we are today without them. In return, we will always strive to provide them with healthy and happy birds, God willing, for many years to
Even though we allow our customers to tour certain parts of our property, we take Bio-Security very seriously and are regularly tested through the Department of Agriculture as participants of the NPIP program (NPIP 58-2347-E). We are certified AI and PT clean. We are also “Limited Egg and Poultry Permit” holders.
This permit allows us to legally sell our farm fresh eggs to consumers and processed meat as well. We do not process our birds at this time, but may embark upon that aspect of the business in the future.
