We first met Todd and Chanteau when they came to get a rooster we needed to rehome and immediately we knew they were great people who cared about their animals and very knowledgeable. I mentioned I had been wanting silkies but read they were hard to keep but Chanteau told me about them and that it was just the opposite. We decided to make the hour trip to visit the farm and came home with 4 new baby silkies that we loved so much we went back 2 weeks later and came home with 4 more. We felt a connection with Todd and Chanteau and had a great time touring the farm and learning about the many different breeds of chickens and they took time to connect with my son which is a huge plus for me. I can’t wait to go back and get more chicks 😁 Please go check them out, you won’t be disappointed. One of the silkies we got from them.

  1. We had a great time here today! If you’re looking for heirloom chicken breeds Todd Abblett and Chanteau Abblett are your go to.

    My granddaughters are already plotting what chores to do so we can buy an incubator and they can have a return visit.

    Our new chickens already gave us an egg🥰

    1. Mrs. Loraine we had the best time showing y’all the farm animals and chickens! If you’re looking for an incubator then we highly recommend the Magicfly Digital Mini Fully Automatic Egg Incubator. It’s on Amazon for $69.00. It’s what we started out with and still use from time to time. Can’t wait to see y’all again. Keep us posted on how your chicks are growing!


  2. We went to Crooked Toe Hatchery to get chicks for our children’s 4-H chick raising project, but we got so much more! Chanteau and Todd showed us around explained all their different breeds and how they are working and evolving with their enclosures and nesting boxes, we learned a lot in the short time we spent with them and the experience was well worth the trip. We highly recommend Crooked Toe Hatchery for all your poultry buying needs, you will get amazing service and the value can’t be beat!! Thank you, Todd and Chanteau!

  5. My son and I went to the hatchery today to get new babies and we were having a hard time deciding between Silkies and Polish and Todd and Chanteau are so knowledgeable they helped us decide that silkies were the best for us and took the time to give us a tour of the farm. My son loved getting to pet and see all of the animals. We will definitely be going back soon for more babies. Thank you for taking time to show us around and sharing your knowledge with us!

  6. Crooked Toe Hatchery is a wonderful place to visit and acquire quality chickens or roosters. Chanteau and Todd are very knowledgeable and willing to help someone understand what the breeds have to offer and help select healthy birds. As a newbie, this was important that I could trust their help in choosing my 4 new babies that would incorporate well with the 2 I already had. They have a full, well organized, and clean set up. It is easy to see their excitement and love of developing good breed lines. Thank you for your patience with this new chicken moma and help. It was really encouraging to be contacted 2 days later to check in on how the birds were doing and answer additional questions.

  7. This farm is absolutely stunning…. and I’m not just talking about the chickens! Todd and Chanteau were wonderful tour guides and I felt welcomed as I entered the farm. The birds are gorgeous and a tour of all of the animals is a must! They are very knowledgeable and you can tell that they strive to breed the happiest and healthiest chicken possible. This is definitely my go to hatchery now! 10/10 recommend!

  8. About five weeks ago we Purchased four Buff Orpingtons at the point of lay. Absolutely gorgeous birds with wonderful personalities! Very healthy. LOVE these birds! This is our second time purchasing birds from Chanteau and Todd and we will get more when we need more birds. The time and effort they give their chickens shows!
