    I did not see this hatchery on the spreadsheet. I was wondering if anyone has used this one and what you thought of it. It is located in Boerne Tx. I see it listed on the featured sponsors, but no reviews.

    I never used it because it doesn't ship to me. I have heard good things though and before I found out neither shipped to me my top two hatcheries(based on reviews, word of mouth etc.) were Murray McMurray and Chickens For Backyards

    I've always used Murray and I really like them, but the breeds I'm wanting to order are not available they say until next year! I was just looking at the other hatcheries and came across CFB and they look pretty good but they are a little pricey. I only had 11 in my cart and it was going to be $79! They also charge $1.25 ea. to vaccinate as I believe Murray is .16 ea. May just put my order in with murray and wait.[​IMG] Thanks for your opinion! (and by the way, They are on the spreadsheet 1 time, rated 10, I just missed it)

    If it makes you feel any better the going price for chickens in Canada is any where from $3-$10 each, and you can't get 'em vaccinated
