Chicken hatcheries sell fertilized eggs, baby chickens and adult chickens, along with the necessary supplies to raise them. Other foul for sale include ducks, geese and turkeys.
At the chicken hatchery, fertilized eggs are incubated until they hatch. Newborn animals stay at the hatcheries until they are old enough to be sent to other locations. Some facilities breed rare species of birds for hobbyists, while others breed animals for food supply purposes. Conservation depends on hatcheries as well.
Small hatcheries exist on small farms and in homes, while larger hatcheries require a full, trained staff and supervision from a veterinarian or biologist.
