    I am looking for a hatchery in New York or Northern PA. I read it's a good idea to try and find a hatchery as close to your home as possible to give the chicks the least amount of travel time possible. Any suggestions? Thank you!

    The only one I know of is Mt. Healthy in Ohio. That's where my feed store gets its chicks from.[​IMG]

    What breed are you looking to get? There is someone on Craigslist (out by your area I think) that has quite a few breeds to pick from. Here is the link...maybe this will help. You'll be supporting a local person, and the chicks won't have to be shipped, you can pick them up. Better all way around, I think![​IMG]

    I've ordered from Mt Healthy and Meyer in OH. Hoffman in PA also has a good selection when in stock, but wouldn't let me pick up even though they are just around the corner [​IMG]

    Just order chicks that are air shipped and sent from a hatchery that usually ships to your area this time of year. I am in upstate NY and ordered chicks from Privett Hatchery in New Mexico. They came last week and I didnt lose a single one. Even the extras are alive and well. The hatcheries in our area (NY,PA,OH) have a pretty slim selection right now, not to mention theyre selling pullet chicks at over 3 dollars a chick... thats insane!
