    Looking to buy Rhode Island Reds and Plymouth Barred Rocks and I don't know where to purchase them from. Any help will be much appreciated.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Are you wanted show quality RIRs and BPRs that meet APA standards? Or are good utility RIRs and BPRs that will breed true okay? If the latter, I've ordered both of these breeds from three different hatcheries in the past, Ideal Poultry, Murray McMurray Hatchery, and Cackle Hatchery, and have been happy with the birds and service from all three hatcheries. However, none of them would likely win any poultry shows.

    Any of the three hatcheries that I mentioned in my post will qualify then. Good luck in getting your RIRs and BRs.
