I am just curious on other people's opinons on obtaining chicks from a hatchery versus breeders?
I am looking for quality birds an I know hatcherys are a production line versus selective breeding, but there may be a chance of one or two really good ones out of, say a dozen. I have not been able to find a breeder in my area yet. I may ask the feed store people if they know anybody in the area.
I am only looking fo heritage breeds - something that is unique.
.(edited to say that I am only starting out in my flocks - thanks).
