    I'm sure the board members already have their favorite hatcheries. What hatcheries do you find have the best value of healthy chicks + customer service (for loss replacement) + great sale prices?

    Shipping from the east coast hatcheries make them impractical for those of us on the west coast. So you have to look at where you are located and figure shipping before you know which are the cheapest.
