    I would recommend Eagle Nest Poultry in Oceola, Ohio, which may be close to you. They carry both strains. I have been very pleased with them this year. They ship chicks out on Wednesday and I get them Thursday morning at 8:30am. I have received 750 chicks this year and only had 3 DOA.

    since cobb owns such a big percent of the overall broiler industry- 30% I think... i would imagine it would be hard not to stumble across their stock.

    Not such a good experience with Eagle's Nest. Advise caution.
