I appreciate it, Cindy. Now if I could just figure out their "availability" schedule - doesn't seem to ever be up-to-date. But as soon as I figure out when to place the order for some Buckeyes and a couple of others, I'll keep everyone advised.
I've also discovered that there are quite a few "hatcheries" who are simply online clearing houses, apparently. Had a couple where "pickup your order" is an option - had several - one within an hour of me - who have stated that "due to security and health issues, we cannot allow visits to the hatchery or pickup of orders". One said their main office is right here, within driving distance, but they ship from from "their" various distribution points across the country, so it's impossible to pick up an order. Oddly enough, their availability of breeds closely matches several of the hatcheries I've contacted.
They ought to just call themselves chick brokers...
By the way, Buckeyes are extremely hard to find - thinking about raising them here - hatching and all!
Oh...based on the thread title,,,does anyone have a promo code for Meyer?
