    Well, in McMurray's FAQ They said they did, and then contacted me and said they didn't. So needless to say, my feathers are a bit ruffled. All the hatcheries here in Canada don't have a very big variety and are very expensive. So do you know any hatcheries that ship outside of the US? We're not that far away from it, a few hours away from Washington.

    EDIT: I'm looking at hatcheries as many breeders here don't have what I want. Japanese Bantams, d'Uccle bantams, Silkies, OEGBs... Etc.

    Generally when animals cross the border they need health certificates and all that fun paperwork - this usually needs to be done by a vet. Not sure if this is the case with chickens, but I would look into it myself before ordering. Just because the hatchery is willing to ship the birds doesn't mean they will actually get to you if they do not have the proper paperwork. It could be very costly in the end.

    Quote:I will! I'm very excited to add Bantams to my flock! However they may need a new coop, being with my big Orpington boys could be interesting.

    Quote:What I find here in Canada is that they (Hatcheries) sell chickens for commercial use only and add no other variaty. We are stuck with breeders that can't meet our demands (say like 10 or more chicks) at a reasonable price.[​IMG]
