OLD BIDDY HATCHERY IS A SMALL HATCHERY IN BURLINGTON NORTH CAROLINA THAT HATCHES CHICKS, DUCKLINGS, GUINEA FOWL KEETS AND TURKEYS. WE HOPE TO ADD A NEW BREED OR TWO EVERY YEAR. THIS TAKES TIME BECAUSE WE HAVE TO BUILD NEW PENS AND HABITATS THAT SUIT EACH BREED.

STARTING OUR HATCHERY IN NORTH CAROLINA

NOW, LET ME TELL YOU HOW THIS LITTLE HATCHERY IN NORTH CAROLINA GOT STARTED…I RETIRED SO MY WIFE DECIDED I NEEDED SOMETHING TO DO AND ALONG CAME THE HATCHERY, IT TOOK A YEAR OR TWO.

ACTUALLY, SHE WANTED A LITTLE RED HEN FOR A PET, SO I BOUGHT HER 4 AND THAT GREW TO ABOUT 35 CHICKENS OF DIFFERENT BREEDS, BUT WE DIDN’T HATCH ANYTHING, WE ONLY SOLD EGGS.

THIS IS THE REST OF THE STORY, AND THE TRUTH ABOUT HOW OLD BIDDY HATCHERY IN NORTH CAROLINA STARTED…WITH PRACTICALLY NO MONEY AT ALL!!! I WAS UNEMPLOYED!!!

ONE DAY I WENT TO PUT EGGS IN OUR COOLER AND IT WAS FULL SO I ASKED GOD WHAT SHOULD I DO WITH ALL THE EGGS I WAS GETTING SINCE THEY WEREN’T SELLING AS FAST AS I WAS GETTING THEM…I HEARD HIM SAY START HATCHING. (I am a believer and God does speak if you listen)

LIKE I SAID, I WAS UNEMPLOYED AND NOT DRAWING A PENNY UNEMPLOYMENT OR ANYTHING ELSE AT THE TIME. SO I SAID OKAY LORD IF YOU WANT ME TO HATCH EGGS SEND ME AN INCUBATOR…AND HE DID!!!

A FREE ONE!!! THAT STARTED OLD BIDDY HATCHERY IN BURLINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA!!!

WHEN THE FIRST BUNCH OF CHICKS HATCHED I PUT THEM ON THE INTERNET AND THEY WERE GONE THE FIRST DAY.

I PULLED THE AD AND PEOPLE KEPT CALLING FOR TWO WEEKS WANTING CHICKS, OF COARSE I HAD RELOADED THE LITTLE INCUBATOR BUT I HAD TO WAIT FOR THEM TO HATCH.

I QUICKLY SAW HOW THIS WAS WORKING AND I ASKED GOD FOR A LARGER INCUBATOR. AGAIN, HE ANSWERED…HE SENT ME ANTIQUE PLYWOOD INCUBATOR, BUILT IN THE 1940s THAT HELD OVER 1000 EGGS. I WAS ABLE TO TRADE 25 HENS AND 2 ROOSTERS FOR IT…NO MONEY!

I STILL USE IT TODAY AND IT STILL WORKS GREAT!!! I’LL BE GLAD TO SHOW IT TO YOU IF YOU STOP BY. I NOW HAVE ANOTHER VINTAGE ONE BUILT IN THE 1960s AND I LOVE THEM!

IT WAS SO LARGE I DIDN’T HAVE A PLACE TO PUT IT SO I ASKED GOD TO SEND ME SOMETHING TO BUILD A SHED WITH, AND AGAIN HE ANSWERED!!! 

A MAN CALLED WANTING A DOZEN HATCHING EGGS AND AS WE TALKED I TOLD HIM HOW I LET MY BULLDOG MOUTH OVERLOAD MY PEKINGESE BUTT. HE ASKED IF I NEEDED SOME LUMBER, I SAID YES BUT I HAD NO JOB AND NO MONEY. HE HAD A LUMBER YARD TO CLEAN OUT SO GOD SUPPLIED MY NEED AGAIN THROUGH THIS MAN AND I BUILT A 32X34 BUILDING WITH THE LUMBER AND YOU CAN SEE IT TOO.

WHEN GOD GIVES YOU SOMETHING HE TAKES CARE OF IT ALL!!! AND I GIVE HIM THE CREDIT FOR BUILDING OLD BIDDY HATCHERY IN BURLINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA BECAUSE HE DID IT!!! NOT ME!!!

BACK TO THE CHICKENS. WE BOTH REALLY LIKED THE RHODE ISLAND REDS SO WE SOLD OFF THE OTHERS.

AFTER THAT I STARTED HATCHING A FEW AND IT GREW INTO OUR LITTLE HATCHERY IN NORTH CAROLINA.

I DECIDED TO NAME IT BACK AFTER HER “OLD BIDDY” SINCE IT WAS HER IDEA.
