Best Hatcheries

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I'm looking for what hatchery has the best show quality chicks. I usually order from Murray McMurray, and I have never had a problem. But I feel like there are better hatcheries out there, especially ones that offer better quality chicks.


I'm looking for the following breeds,
Black Australorp
Barred Rock(not as important)
Silver Laced Wyandotte
Silver Spangled Hamburg
Ameracauna
Maran(unsure on the color)


I'm also open to suggestions on private breeders. But I don't have the money to spend $100 on 10 chicks that I don't know the gender of.

No large hatchery is going to have show quality chicks. Your best bet is to get some hatching eggs or a full grown pair from a breeder. Just my .02

Also you can put wanted ads on here and they can probably help you find breeders for some of those.

I know that. That's why I stated above "hatcheries that offer better quality chicks".
It's hard for me to get show quality chickens because of my location. Most private breeders I've found don't ship chicks or eggs, and the ones that do are out of my price.
