    I have been prixcing out Cornish X lately for the Fall/Winter season. These are the best I have found:

    Meyer- $99 - 100 chicks plus $50 fos shipping to my area (Washington State)
    Cackle - $114 - 100 chicks plus $50 shipping
    Welp $181 - 150 Cornish X - no shipping.

    It seems the price has gone up lately. I am new but I thought I recently saw them at 70 -80 cents a chick? Where do you get the best price?? [​IMG]

    Sure you do!!! [​IMG]
    I just got 27 (ordered 25, got 2 extra) from Schlecht. They're 5 days old and doing great with no losses.
    (Actually, the females are only 80 cents. [​IMG] )

    Already mentioned , but http://www.schlechthatchery.com/chickens.htm at 80 cents for pullets , 88 straight run , and 98 cockerals . I'm happy with the birds they sent me , but if you're wanting white laced red Cornish don't expect them to look anything close to the show quality bird they have pictured [​IMG]

    Oh wow, thanks! You guys just saved me some money! I was planning to order from Mount Healthy and get the extra cockerel chicks, but no one else who is going in on the order is interested in the freebies, and I don't necessarily need all those roosters hanging around for weeks and weeks crowing their heads off...I can save a ton of money and get more of the Cornish if I go with Central.
