WE HAD HOPED TO ADD A NEW BREED OR TWO EVERY YEAR TO OUR HATCHERY, BUT I’VE HAD A STROKE AND A HEART ATTACK SO I DON’T THINK WE WILL GET ANY BIGGER.

OUR LITTLE HATCHERY IN BURLINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA TAKES A LOT OF TIME AND LOTS OF WORK BECAUSE WE HAVE TO BUILD NEW PENS SO WE CAN SEPARATE EACH BREED AND NOT HAVE ANY CROSS BREEDING.

STARTING OUR HATCHERY IN NORTH CAROLINA

AFRICAN WHITE GUINEA AT OLD BIDDY HATCHERY, BURLINGTON,NC

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 AT FIRST, 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!!!

MIXED COLOR AMERAUCANA HEN

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!!!

HERITAGE BREED RHODE ISLAND RED CHICKS

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. GOD WORKED IT OUT SO I WAS ABLE TO TRADE 25 HENS AND 2 ROOSTERS FOR IT…NO MONEY!

THE FIRST ONE 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.

TURNS OUT, 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!!! YOU CAN SEE IT TOO. THIS IS WHERE I KEEP MY INCUBATORS AND MY CHICKS!!!

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!!!

OLD BIDDY HATCHERY’S HERITAGE BREED RHODE ISLAND REDS.

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

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

I DECIDED TO NAME THE HATCHERY BACK AFTER MY WIFE SINCE IT WAS HER IDEA AND ALONG CAME “OLD BIDDY HATCHERY”!!!
