In 2018 a group of Farmers came together and “hatched” a plan to produce a better chick for the Ontario Market.  A 70,000 square foot hatchery emerged  with the vision of providing immediate light, feed and water to the newly hatched chick.  This group believed that these three elements were paramount to the development of a better healthier bird.  Trillium Hatchery was born.

Today, Trillium Hatchery provides broiler chicks to commercial farms across Southwestern Ontario.  It employees approximately 56 people who are committed to bringing the vision of a better chick to our customers.

Here at Trillium Hatchery we pride ourselves in using the best quality broiler hatching eggs.  These eggs are delivered to our Hatchery which adheres to strict Biosecurity and Animal Welfare Guidelines.  Our team then labels the eggs and separates the delivery by the age of the egg and by what farm it came from.  This is an important part of the process as this information is then passed on to our producers when they place their order with us.

Chicken eggs take 21 days to hatch.  Our eggs are placed in our state of the art incubators where temperature, humidity and ventilation is closely monitored.  Constant heat and rotation of the egg is crucial in the development of the egg.

Once the chicks are hatched, they are provided with food and water.  Trillium Hatchery is proud to be the only Hatchery in Ontario which provides this.  It has been proven that be being introduced to food, water and light, a better, healthier bird is produced.

Our chicks are hatched, processed, vaccinated and delivered to the Producer in the same clean and disinfected basket.  These baskets are carefully placed into a clean climate controlled transport truck for delivery to our customers.  Careful planning goes into delivery times, locations and the size of the flock order.
