Selecting your Source for Poultry

Trusting a Selected Breeder 

When it comes to building a healthy and disease-free flock of chickens, selecting a trusted breeder for purchasing hatching eggs is of utmost importance. While many diseases cannot be transmitted vertically through hatching eggs, there are certain illnesses, like mycoplasma, that can have devastating effects on your flock and even spread to other livestock. At Breezy Bird Farms, pride is taken in being free from respiratory diseases and ensuring the highest quality hatching eggs. 

The Risk of Disease Transmission
One of the main concerns when purchasing poultry is the potential transmission of diseases. While some diseases cannot be transmitted via hatching eggs, certain respiratory diseases like mycoplasma can be passed on. This means that if you purchase hatching eggs from a breeder who has infected birds, the disease may show up in your chicks and spread throughout your entire flock. Such an outcome can lead to significant losses, both in terms of finances and the health of your chickens. Additionally, these diseases can also affect other livestock, further amplifying the potential damage.

Unfortunately, when purchasing from unknown sources, you may not have access to such resources. This puts you at a higher risk of introducing diseases to your flock unknowingly. By trusting a selecting Breezy Bird Farms, you can be assured that the breeding birds receive routine veterinary care as well as on site visitations, ensuring a healthy and disease-free lineage.

Advantages of Hatching Eggs

Hatching eggs allow you to closely monitor the incubation process, ensuring optimal conditions for successful hatching.
