Local hatcheries near/in New England?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

I am going to get 4 Barred Rocks and 2 Wyandottes (all pullets). I was unhappy to find that Murray McMurray has a 20 chick minimum, so I looked at Ideal Poultry. But they are in Texas, so that's a long way for our little chicks to travel, and I'd like to stay relatively local. Anybody out there had any good experience with hatcheries in the New England area?

I'm in Texas, so I usually order from Ideal and Privett. But here's a link to a list of hatcheries by state: http://www.countrychickens.com/country_chickens_4_003.htm

I believe that Meyers Hatchery is in Northern Ohio.  There are several small hatcheries around as well.

Check out mypetchicken.com  they have a 3 chick minimum.  They're in Norwalk CT  - just about a 3 hr drive from Eastern Mass, too.

Hardy's up on Rt. 133 in Essex, Mass. They closed to the public for a while, I heard, but now they're open again and have a number of popular laying breeds.

I was able to open the link, but the Hardy's Hatchery information isn't there anymore. But they have listings on farm websites: Here is one with the phone number:
