Hello! Deciding to get chickens is the easy part, but now is the question of how? Hatchery, breeder, feedstore? – — – When getting my chickens I did lots of research on where I wanted to get them from and it was relatively late in the season so I couldn't just go to my local feed store and get some chicks. I decided on a Hatchery for myself. I live in the New England region so it didn't want my chickens having to be shipped from far away. Ultimately I decided on Hoover's Hatchery.
