I would like to add some cuckoo marans to hatch my own dual purpose black sex links. My first choice would be a breeder, but cuckoo seems to be a harder variety to find and I'm considering the possibility of going with a hatchery as an alternative. I am really interested in this cross as a meat bird for my personal uses (and being able to sell pullets locally to people who want laying hens) and I know that hatchery birds are often not as strong in the meat qualities. I've found four hatcheries who have cuckoo marans advertised on their sites; Privett, McMurray, Cackle, and The Poultry Hatchery. I've not heard of the fourth one at all, and Privett is farthest from me so I am a little more concerned about time in the mail if we went through them. Has anyone had any experiences with marans from any of these hatcheries?
