    I am in N Illinois too! I have some of this and some of that, but actively breed Seramas. I also have turkins, dominique, buckeye. Got some ducks, geese, and turkeys.

    Depends on how northern you want to search for?

    There are a few, depending on breeds you are looking for. I do not know of any hatcheries up that far north if you are looking for hatchery chicks.

    Quote:Breeders are fine too! I am about 15 minutes from the Wisconsin border and about 2 hours west of Chicago, though. So I guess if anybody knows any in Southern Wisconsin too. [​IMG]

    I raise/breed mf cochins, white cochins, and bbs mottled cochins (all bantams). [​IMG] I'm about 45 mins from rockford.
    Edited to add that I also have silkies but they are not seperated by color as of yet.

    Just got 27 Australorp female chicks today from Hoovers in Iowa. I have extras if you are interested. The woman I was supposed to split the order with told me she no longer wants chicks. PM me if you are interested. I'm in Chicago but I can meet you half-way.
