Hoovers Hatchery - Loss of chicks
I'll never order through tractor supply online site again an I will never order live birds from your hatchery again I will get the rest of dead chicks pics from my husband and file a formal complaint I have spent to much money on your chicks just to die or dead on arrival an they continue to die an yes I stay with 24/7 for the first few days an y'all chicks are the only ones dying coming out deformed I'll get letters from everyone this year sucked for your chickens I'm very sorry about that but I'm not paying for it Every single chick I hatch goes through the same process and I am yet to lose more than 3 out of 800 I have been doing this for my whole life and I believe that you are over breeding with a bad stock of parents not one of the chicks I have ordered have even been the breed I ordered they were mix breed or barnyard mix in which I would have enjoyed them and you are sending way to many roosters in the unsexed so Yeah I am not happy

User's recommendation: Wait till they find the issue with the deformed an dead an dying chicks.

Quail Chicks I ordered

I ordered 30 quail chicks from this hatchery on February 16th, 2022. I was expecting the chicks on the 23 (they were due to ship the 22nd) and instead, were told they would arrive in February 24th (it would take 2 days to ship them). Today is the 24th- and have been waiting all morning to get the call that the chicks arrived at the post office. Never got the call. Called the hatchery to get the tracking number, and it stated that the chicks weren't due to arrive until the 28th! REALLY!? Someone screwed up that order, bad. Called back the hatchery, and they did reimburse the money- but I feel so bad for those chicks-they never had a chance. I was so disappointed in the hatchery, as well as the post office. I will never deal with this hatchery again.

User's recommendation: If you need to buy chicks, go somewhere close to where you live. At least you know you'll get live chicks.

Chicks ordered died

I ordered 10 Light Brahma chicks from Tractor Supply online. They got theses chicks from Hoover Hatchery. All you read about are the good things @ Hoover Hatchery. Now for the bad. They sent out 11 tiny chicks in a little box with holes. The poor 11th chick was supposed to be a heater. This was a very cold and windy day. Their only protection was little pad on the floor of the box and some straw. I got the call from the PO and got dressed and hurried over. I was handed the chicks and put the box under my coat to shield them from the wind. Upon arrival at home I opened the bo. One chick was already dead. The straw was all green and the mat was cold. I ad the worst time of my life the next 2 days as chicks were wretching and dying, They could not stand,eat, or drink. They sent these chicks regular mail. Perhaps if they sent them 1st class? They refunded me $10. I got 2 chicks that lived. I paid $50.Never Again. Morrison's sends their chicks 1st class and hold them up to 3 days so they are very lively! I paid through PayPal so now my battle begins. Who thinks I should get a refund? By the way the 2 chicks I have left still have pasty butt and are on probiotics! In this day and age even a chick matters! I really think I should be reimbursed in total for heart ache but will settle for $29.99 more. Thanks for reading.
