re: Meyer Hatchery. None of this is new info, but thought I'd put here what a Meyer live chat rep told me: They have their own line of CLs, which they will be hatching from in April and May. No pre-orders at this time. The person overseeing the CLs cannot release where they're from, but the chat rep said it will be from the top breeder of CLs. She said they are focusing on production quality vs. show quality (which is in line with what a large hatchery does). She said female chicks are tentatively priced at $49 but that may change. While I was not completely happy with her answers, she was trying to be helpful to the best of her ability and was very pleasant. edited to add: Pictures will be in the next catalog, and will be of birds from their own flock.
