Trying to find a place to buy new chicks before spring in Central Oklahoma

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Hi Everyone,

 

I know that I can buy chicks in the spring at my local Atwoods, but I am trying to get this thing going before then so I can see some results before next Christmas. Does anyone have any idea where I can get them at this time of year? I am also not sure what kind to get. I want eggs and at some time I may even use them in a few recipes that I have, but mainly I am interested in the egg production for the bakery side of my catering business due to the increased price of eggs now and in the future.

A lot of hatcheries are shipping chicks right now.  I know that Meyer Hatchery and Ideal Hatchery both have shipping dates available in January.  Just check out their websites. Both offer assortments that are all pullets and consist of different breeds so if you can't make up your mind on a specific breed you could get several.

For Meyer at least, you can call them and find out dates available determined on the combination of chicks you want, their website isn't exact.

Hi there. If you wanted something a little more local you could try Country Hatchery in Wewoka. You can pick up chicks and I believe they also ship.

There's also Terrapin Station Ranch in Jennings that has some great birds.  I will post their phone number if I can find it.

My current zoo consists of over 20 pullets/hens, 3 muscovy hens, trio of snowy call ducks, 4 corgis, 3 cats, and 1 betta fish. Getting 2 pygmy goats soon. I think I'm addicted.
