    Does anyone suggest the best place we could buy meat birds? We live in North Alabama. McMurray? Thank you

    I would just look for which hatchery is most recommended. Shipping shouldn't be a problem. So go by price, reputation etc. If you aren't waiting until spring, make sure the hatchery uses heat packs on cold days. You can also usually add gro-gel in the shipping container for a few dollars if you are concerned.

    I had ducklings shipped to FL (when I lived there) from CA and they arrived fine.

    I think all the major hatcheries are safe or they wouldn't be in business for long. I have always had good luck with McMurray but have used Ideal as well as Cackle.
