    Well the title says it all .. I have called close to 75 hatcheries and have only found one that still has any available... Hoovers only has the Whites and since i havent used them or raised the whites im a lil concerned... Anyone have any ideas of hatcheries that still the BBB for 2010.. I would like some place close to indiana so they wont have to travel far in this heat .. Heck if they are with in and 1 1/2 hr I will pick them up ... Any Ideas ?????

    I am assuming you have called Meyer in Ohio. They usually have them in the store as extras.

    No their web site always states that. I was just there yesterday. Just call and order. They always have extras also. You should be able to order. I don't know what days their ship date is, I'm assuming it is Mon and Tues. the same as pick up dates. Michele

    Go with the whites, same exact bird just a different color. I've done both and like the whites better... that way I can spot them in the fields or the woods!

    Quote:Thanks Jeff .. i actually did order 30 of the whites from ridgway hatchery .. They were a little more expensive then I would have liked but are much closer them most hatcheries ( and with the heat I thougth this safest) and also could hatch them out three weeks earlier then any other hatchery i found.. the extra weeks will be awesome as I had to make my processing apoint. for NOv. 17th as that was the latetst they had open before thanksgiving ... i may be hitting you up with some questions if you dont mind ,... This is my first time raising for someone else....


    Thanks for all the replies folks..
