Welcome to our new website!

The Coop with Meyer Hatchery is a place where we talk all things poultry, in hopes of inspiring crazy chicken keepers and educating future flock owners. Together we'll take a more in-depth look at poultry-related care and the questions we commonly hear. The Coop also offers a new view on behind-the-scenes with Meyer Hatchery and features minisode interviews with industry leaders.

Jeff has been with Meyer Hatchery for nearly 10 years, but his poultry experience spans multiple decades. Keeping and showing all sorts of birds was a family affair for Jeff, wife, and his 5 kids, as they traveled around to midwest poultry events. His many years of experience have earned Jeff the status of semi-retired as he now enjoys traveling, ocean activities, and visiting his family.
