    I am wanting to purchase a combination of Barnevelder , Maran , and Welsummer chicks . Ideal is sold out of Barnevelder until 2009.


    Anyone know of a good source of quality chicks ????

    Everywhere I know is sold out of Barnevelder and or doesn't have Marans and Welsummers. Have you considered purchasing hatching eggs?

    Ideal said that they were sold out of lavender silkies, and I hit the Notify Me button, to be put on the waiting list for next year. They called me three weeks ago, and they had extras. So you never know. [​IMG]

    I got a call from Ideal about Barnies a few weeks ago. They had 25 st run chicks available. However, I didn't want st run so I passed.
    I found a wonderful Barnie owner/breeder here in my state and got 2 pair. Praise the Lord! I though I would never find this breed!
    Keep looking and good luck!

    Quote:why not just add a Light Sussex & a Lavender Orpington to that list and then you'll have the complete list of the hardest to find quality chicks that I know of so far! [​IMG]

    I would love some of the barnies...
