    I just looked last week into placing an order and My Pet Chicken still has some breeds but they are sold out of the ones I'm interested in for the season. Might be worth placing a call to them. They may not have enough to offer online but may have some they are willing to sell you.

    I order from Meyer Hatchery all year. They are out of some of the more rare breeds, but most of your basic breeds they have. Check on Tuesdays on the "poultry available for this week" page because apparently depending on how hatches turn out they may have many more breed available. You can almost always order a "production pack" or rainbow layer pack and most of your basic breeds.
