My local tractor supply tried to tell me bantam was a breed the rest are different color chickens. They also had no idea what hatchery they order from (I spoke to 3 diff people and called) ... I was not impressed by the people, we shall see about quality.

I LOVE MY BIRDS FROM MY PET CHICKEN!!! Very small minimum orders in the seasons other than winter and really good quality birds!

@chickenhawk1982 I saw that you have had good results with Murray McMurray and I was wondering if you knew anything about the Choice Layers. Our friends ordered 25 of them and they wanted us to raise them until they are about a month or so then we are planing on keeping 3-4. Thanks, brotchicks

Edit: MPC has a spot to calculate the minimum chick number.

Where can you calculate the minimum chick number?

I ordered 40 Barred Rocks from Cackle Hatchery a few weeks ago and they arrived today.

 

All of them arrived alive, healthy and active.  Shipping time was 2 days.

 

Note: we were supposed to get chicks from the Oct 7th run (the date given on their website and the one we requested.) However, they arrived a week early and we are still building their coop.  Still, the fact that they arrived too soon is the only minor complaint that we have... and most folks would not see that as a reason to complain!

 

Overall, they get a thumbs up from us.

I get my from a local feed store, and they order from cackle. I have had at least one best in show or best pullet from this hatchery, as far as quality goes. Most of the chickens that I have from the company align with the standard. I had an especially stunning barred rock hen from cackle that I enjoyed a lot!
