    I'm looking for poults, wondering which hatcheries have the best combination of low price/good healthy poults.

    What experiences have you folks had with hatchery poults? And what breeds did you get?

    I've raised BBB's, Bourbon Reds, and Narragansetts. The heritage breeds tasted better, but the BBB's were much calmer, and of course, were a lot bigger. I wouldn't mind getting a few BBB's and few heritage of some sort.
