The Art of Hatching Quality Chicks

Hatching quality chicks season-after-season to esteemed Game Farms is a practice built on trust, professionalism and quality. Learn how the country's leading Game Farm have this down to an art.

Putting the success of your stock, and subsequently shoot season, in the hands of a Game Farm is no easy feat. Quite simply, poor stock in the rearing season will no doubt result in dissatisfied shooting clients in the shoot season. No shoot can afford this financially or through reputation; notwithstanding the current circumstances.

Choosing a quality Game Farm to source your chicks from is equally as important as choosing what stock to rear based on each estate's individual requirements. No one understands this more than Bettws Hall, the UK's most revered Game Farm.

The cutting-edge technology used in the Bettws Hall hatchery is capable of handling a strong throughput of eggs per week. Don't be put off by the sheer volume, though, as is found with their shooting, Bettws work hard on customer service and ensuring each client is looked after and catered for from start to finish.

With a wealth of experience and knowledge spanning over 30 years and counting, Gwyn & Ann Evans, together with their team, work closely with estates to advise on chick breeds. They understand that Game Keepers will have varying requirements and preferences; a one-chick-fits-all approach simply does not cut it in an industry with so many variables.
