Who ships to south Alabama?
Featured Stories on BackYard Chickens
I do not think there are regions that hatcheries do not ship to. BUT I would choose one that is closer to me then say California is to you. Not sure as I have not ordered chicks before but thinking the trip would be easier if they were closer by.
Cackle has a HUGE assortment of breeds and gets some good ratings. Might be worth a look.
There are a lot of hatcheries on the east end of the country. Not so many on the west side of Kansas though.
Wishing you luck in finding the chicks you are looking for.
