    One of the local feedstores gets some of their chicks from a place called Bolt Hatchery. I can't find it anywhere online. Am I spelling it right? Anyone heard of it?

    Thanks. Just wondering what they might have for special ordering next spring. They also order from McMurray...

    I think it is Belt Hatchery.

    I live in Tollhouse, which is outside of Fresno, and have many girls from Belt. I've had great luck with their birds as far as health and laying goes. Of course, they're hatchery birds, so you can't expect them to look like the birds breeders have, but they're typically pretty nice birds.

    well, I'm not too concerned about "show quality" in my chickens anyway... I don't really plan on showing them. I just like having them [​IMG] If I ever hatch any out (how can I resist forever? [​IMG] ), they'll be hybrids anyway since I have such a mix of breeds anyway...

    Thanks for the help, guys.
