Townline Poultry?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone, my local feed store orders their chicks from Townline and I was wondering if anyone had any feedback as far as how healthy their chicks are. I talked to the lady at the feedstore and the chicks are $1.60 each for pullets, no minimum order and I can mix and match breeds. So I was thinking this sounded like a pretty good deal....

Wow!!  If you're getting pullets for that price, you should jump on it.  Townline supplies many TSC and FFH stores here.  I have always had great, healthy, hatchery quality stock from them.

I buy their ISA Brown chicks.  I fully recommend them. Best red sex-links I've ever had.

At the very least, wipe the poop off your feet before getting in the car.

I live in Florida and have ordered from Townline Hatchery several times. I have never lost a chick from them yet. All have arrived very healthy. The Isa Browns I have gotten from them are the best layers I have ever had. Most of the eggs are jumbo. I highly recommend them.

Thanks for the replys all. I don't want to order a bunch because chicken math has already gotten the best of me lol. I was thinking maybe 10 EEs and 5-10 Isa Browns. When I sell eggs the people really seem to like the EE eggs just because they are different. Again thanks for the replies and that is where I will get my new chickies from. Oh crud now I am getting excited lol

I ordered their easter eggers and australorps last spring, and overall I'm pretty happy. The EE's took a few weeks longer to start laying, but of the 5 hens I average about 4 eggs a day. I'll post some pics of the birds when I get a chance The eggs range in color from olive green to light blue, and one of them lays a green/blue egg with brown specks. The australorps haven't been as great as I expected they would be. Huge birds, but of the 4 only 2 are daily layers of big, light brown eggs. All of the birds are very calm though. I'm going to give their barred rocks, buff orps and  rhode islands a try this spring. Does anyone have any experience with their khaki campbells or rouens?

I'll be refreshing my ISA flock this spring and I'll just stop by a FF&H or TSC and pick them up.  Not much sense in ordering and paying shipping.  Even after all these years, I still get excited about brooding out a batch of chicks. Don't even know why. tongue.png

Michigan to Florida.  Shipped sixty three and sixty two lively chicks went into the brooder.  Their ISA Browns have become the backbone of my flock.
