Our hobby is like bird watching, but on a bigger scale. It is nice to raise an animal that gives something back. Fellow flock owners know that with chickens, you get so much more than just eggs.
Farm living is not for the faint of heart. There is a lot of work involved, even if this is still a hobby farm. This is not our primary source of income, but it definitely entails a majority of our time. Please bear with us if we do not always answer the phone. Leave a message and we will call you back.
We would love for Taylor Hobby Farms to be a flourishing family business someday. We are not there yet as feed and good husbandry consume a lot of the profits. The one thing we do not wish to lose though is the personal involvement we have now. Though our farm is managed completely by our family and out of our own home, you will find that we practice great customer service and your phone calls or e-mails will not be ignored. Please don't forget to leave Testimonials to share your experience with others after receiving an order from us.
Above all, we praise God for the opportunities he has given us and remain aware that our goals of a future business will only prosper as long as it conforms to God's will in our lives.
Please check our new "Available Now" link under "More" at the top of the page to see what chicks are available for pick-up at our farm. We may occasionally list hatching eggs and other animals there as well. We also have created a Frequently Asked Questions "FAQ" page for your convenience and ours.
If you are looking for chicks in our Web Store and it is not available until a later date, we would suggest you still place an order if you are not in too much of a hurry. Lately, we have been able to move 1 or 2 orders up each hatch, at least on some breeds, and we will check with those who have already placed an order before going to those on the waiting list. Extra chicks hatched that have not been spoken for will go towards the Assortment, extras or will be available for pick-up. Breeds we currently carry include Blue Jersey Giants, Blue Orpingtons, Chocolate Orpingtons, Black and Blue Copper Marans, Blue Olive Eggers, Blue Ameraucanas and Laced Brahmas from Dan Powell lineage.
Check out our links at the top for more information and when looking through our site, keep in mind that all pictures are of our actual flocks, chicks, eggs and outbuildings. We have many more pictures we update on a weekly basis on our Facebook page. Please do not use our pictures to sell your own chicks or hatching eggs without giving us credit for them. These pictures are copyrighted. Thank you for looking!
We spend a lot of time answering e-mails and phone calls, not only to sell, but to advise as well. We have learned a lot over the years about hatching, raising chickens and other farm animals. We are more than happy to try to answer your questions or point you in the right direction if we do not know the answer. If you are able, please consider sending a donation to us, only if we have provided such a service to you.
All of our flocks have received their NPIP Certification, having been tested for both Pullorum and Typhoid. They have also been tested for Avian Influenza. We also carry an egg candling license and a poultry dealer/broker license.
We have been raising chickens for more than ten years and have been hatching from our own eggs since 2009.
