A Meyer Meal Maker is a FREE day-old baby chick from Meyer Hatchery. We provide this chick in hopes you'll raise the chick to laying or butchering age, and simply donate the eggs or meat produced from that chicken to a local family or charity in need. Whether you order 3 layers or 300, you can request a Meyer Meal Maker on every chick order you place. Same goes for meat birds! This is just one simple way you and your family can get involved and make a difference in your community.
What will my Meyer Meal Maker be? We will include one free hatchery choice chick that is similar to what is already on your order. Example: If you ordered all female layers, we send another female layer. Same goes if you order all meat birds - we would send a meat bird.
How can one chick make such a difference? If you receive an average laying Meyer Meal Maker chick, you'll be able to donate roughly 182 eggs in just one year! That's over 15 dozen eggs going to hungry people in your community. Just imagine if you and every other chicken keeper around the world kept one hen for the same purpose.
Meyer Meal Makers can only be included on select layer and broiler chick orders. Meyer Hatchery is not obligated to include a Meyer Meal Maker in other poultry orders, even if you have added that option. Since the Meal Maker Chick is provided for free, they are not covered under our 48-hour guarantee and there can be no refund or reship for loss of your Meal Maker.
Want to know what breed you received? Meyer Meal Maker chick breeds are hatchery choice and chosen on your hatch date. Please feel free to give us a call, send us an email or chat us on our website any time, and we'll be happy to look that up for you.
