Best Poultry Hatchery or Breeder Near Central IL - Page 3

post #21 of 24

We have a broody hen who should be ready to accept chicks in two weeks.  I'd like to give her two or three chicks to raise (any more and the coop will start to be overcrowded).  But the farm supply stores i know of that sell chicks have stopped for the year.  I don't want to deal with straight run again.

 

Any good sources in the Springfield IL area?

 

We're flexible on breed, as long as they are hardy, and good layers.

Only one I have heard of in Springfield, IL is a silkie and polish breeder.   The closest large capacity chick breeder with a variety of breeds that I am personally aware of is Duda Lang Farms in Missouri.  They are about 2 hours one way from Springfield, IL.  They have a facebook and update it with chick hatches.  I haven't used them, but I they were on my list to check out if I end up getting more chicks next year.
