I read a old Backyard Poultry issue and i saw a article about a young man who raised chickens for show and when he first started he bought some chickens from a "Well known hatchery" and it was disqualified from a show for being a "Unknown Breed" . If my memory is right he was saying that when you order a Rhode Island Red from a big hatchery you probably are just getting Production Reds. Im not sure what a Production red is but i know a Rhode island Red is always suppose to be a Rhode Island Red. So What im wondering is, is there alot of truth that a Big hatchery may just try to pass off certain breeds for others? Is it just a matter of the big hatcheries needing big quantities so they let their Quality lack, or is it that some start off with purer chickens to begin with or what? Also among all of the more or lesser known hatcheries (Some i know are, Superior Farms, Ideal, McMurray, Hoffman, Hoover's, Meyer, Mt. Healthy, Urch/Turnlund, Welp & Strombergs) Do any focus on the quality of their animals and the heritage or closeness to breed standards? Thanks for the insights!
