WHAT AMY FEWELL HAS TO SAY ABOUT MCMURRAY HATCHERY
“When we first started keeping chickens, I wanted them all. I wanted the pretty birds, the pretty eggs, the crazy poof heads … the list goes on. But as we dove deeper into our homesteading journey, we wanted more than just aesthetics. We needed birds that would fit into our sustainability plans. We wanted birds that were naturally and genetically hardy, healthy, and smart. As we started getting in chickens from McMurray Hatchery, they met every single expectation I had of them. They were hardy, they were exceptionally healthy, and yes, even their aesthetics were pleasing!
We then ventured into the wonderful world of ducks and geese, and those didn’t disappoint either. Now, my geese from McMurray Hatchery are my favorite barnyard flocksters. And just like the chickens, I’ll never have to worry about their health or wellbeing, because they’ve been healthy since day one! As our homestead grows, our flock of McMurray birds grow, too!”
