I just wanted to share my experience with some email correspondence with Gabbard Farms. I had emailed them because I live in Arkansas and wanted to find Partridge Rocks. I did a search and found that Gabbard Farms was a mere 20 minute drive from me. I emailed them and asked when they might have chicks or hatching eggs available and asked if I could pick them up since we were so close. She responded by telling me that they do not currently offer local pick up, but they would be happy to ship to me. I declined, as I thought the idea to ship to me was a tad ludicrous. I thought it might be a biosecurity issue, so I asked if I could meet her in town to pick up. She responded by telling me that her chicks were hatched out of state for them. What?! Does anyone know what the heck is going on with this farm?
