    So googling a handfull of hatcheries like McMurry and Ideal etc... They all seem to be really far away. Anyone know of a closer one? I don't really like the idea of shipping birds that far. Thanks.

    Thanks for the list. I've called some of those places in the past and they don't really have a huge variety and most specialize in the non chicken domain. I guess if I want guineas though I know where to go!

    Yeah, it's strange that there aren't any substantial chicken hatcheries in this area. I want to get some more obsure breeds in the future but also don't prefer mail order, but it doesn't seem like there's much of a choice.

    This is where most of the WA state feed stores get their chicks, and where my chicks came from, VIA 2 different feed stores.
    I think New Mexico is closer then most.

    Quote:Lol, Looks like they aren't paticular when they cut and paste info about their birds; I know my spelling sucks but I also know when I see Brittish spelling VS American spelling and they use both... Colour...Color
    Just thought ide point that out [​IMG]
    I'll need to remember that place and check it out, next time I head south.
