    Hi! I'm planning on ordering my first round of chicks in about 2 months and I was just curious if y'all had any recommendations on a good hatchery to order from? Would love to hear any opinions or if you have had any particularly good or bad experiences with any particular mail order type hatchery? Thanks!

    For breeds of poultry you should first consider buying from reputable breeders. For hybrid egg laying chickens and meat chickens choose a big commercial hatchery like Cackle or McMurray. I do business with both and know the owners.
