Can you guys tell me what kind of chickes do your feed stores usually have????????
Usually RIR, BR, Brahmas and occasionally speckled sussex.
Another feed store near me only takes orders and you can order pretty much anything.
do you know where they order from????
Our local feed store get all different kind in the spring. Everything from Silkies to cochins, orps, EE's, Barred rocks, white rocks, jersey giants, bronze breasted turkeys, white turkeys, royal palm turkeys, guineas, all different breeds of geese and ducks. They will do a special order for you for whatever breed of anything you want, even peacocks and quail!
They order from Privett Hatchery. All the birds I have gotten from them have been happy and healthy!
The local tractor supply had RIR, mixed Bantams, ducklings, and Cornish-Xs all strait run last spring.
Our feedstore buys from MacMurray. They have a pretty big selection every year including RIRs, Ameracaunas, Leghorns, Orps, Black stars, several kinds of ducks, several geese including sebastapols, turkeys, quail and guineas. I often wonder what they do with the ones they can't sell because ain't nobody in this neck of the woods can afford sebastapols.
Our feed store buys from Mt Healthy. I believe they get the 'dual purpose' chicks, mostly RIR, brahmas, and rocks. They can special order ducks or geese or bantams for you if you ask.
Our feed store usually has a bin of RIR, Barred Rocks and then bantams that are an obvious assortment. They sometimes get large fowl assortment as well. The thing with the RIRs and Barred Rocks, they will order pullets so you don't have to buy straight run.
Quote:That's what ours does too. They order x amount of straight run, then like half that amount of straight pullets.
Oh, and ours gives the chicks away. 5 free chicks for every 50# of chick starter.
The main one in town gets about 5000 chicks yearly from Ideal, and sells them in every month except Nov and Dec She gets in many, many breeds, sexed pullets in the standards and lots of assorted bantams. She has all the most common breeds, plus others things like D'Uccles, Brahmas, etc.
The other store gets chicks from Privett and for a limited time. They had the usual breeds, plus, last year they had black Wyandottes.
