    Here's a link that I found. I was thinking of ordering their meat bird special, which don't sound bad to me, but after looking at other things on the site, wasn't sure how dependable they were.

    Oops! Sorry. Here's the link:

    Hope that works.

    Looks interesting... I'd definitely be willing to try them when I get around to doing meat birds... at 0.26 each, how can you go wrong???

    i live like 30-45 minutes from this hatchery. ive seen the facilities, and i have to say that i was impressed.

    it was pretty clean for a hatchery. and not overcrowded either.
    they also have a fenced in area that they let the older hens roam. it was pretty nice.

    Only $0.26 EACH? OMG! I am SO glad I read this post before I confirmed my order! We are getting 40 Cornish this time around and our hatchery sells them for $0.70 each. I thought THAT was a bargain! Wow~! If anyone has had a bad experience please let me know before I hit the submit order button! Thanks! [​IMG]

    EDIT: Ah, its not the Cornish Cross and thats where they stick ya. Bummer. I was gonna order there too. [​IMG] I would be safe at guessing that their meat combo is just left over cockerels so its a guessing game as to what you get, and you have to feed them longer because they grow slower and thats why they are so cheap.

    i got my girls from ideal because mt healthy wasnt shipping when i wanted them.

    but as i said, i was impressed with the facility, and the birds were good looking.

    i didnt look for meat birds though, so i cant confirm anything on that.

    What kind of chicks did they send for that price? Sounds like a great deal!
