Does anyone know of any hatcheries or private breeders of heritage breed chickens in the Greater Toronto area? I'm located an hour north of Toronto, in Schomberg, Ontario.
What I’m particularly looking for are day-old (or older) pullets of Chantecler, Speckled Sussex, Dominique, Orpington, Wyandotte and/or Welsummer breeds. I’d also like to add a couple of Americauna or Araucana. This is proving to be no easy task.
I am willing to travel a reasonable distance (a couple of hours) to pick up the chicks. Unfortunately, many of the heritage hatcheries are near Ottawa, which is about 5-6 hours from here. :-(
Any information, contacts or recommendations will be very gratefully appreciated!
