    Anyone have experience with ChickHatchery.com? I want to get some Buff Chanteclers and found this website. The name attached to the site is John W Blehm in Birch Run MI.

    Yes, I have ordered from him before and am quite happy with the Ameraucanas I got from him. I got blacks, silvers, and the remainder were hatchery choice (buffs, wheatens, lavender). You won't regret ordering from him! He also designed his own nest box. 2012 is the last year he's selling chicks, so if you're considering ordering from him, this is it.

    I know he said he was going to focus more on "Fowl Stuff," his line of poultry products. He mentioned it on the ABC forum and told us that the whole chickhatchery.com domain was for sale as well. As I recall, he did say he'd be keeping some of his chickens, but it didn't sound like many.

    [​IMG] I know he is not getting any younger so I don't blame him if he wants to cut back a bit.
