    Can anyone point me in the direction of Golden Cascades?

    I have read some great things about them and would like to get some next spring. So far I have not heard anyone say anything bad about the breed.

    I have never ordered from them and from reading their policies online it seems they are difficult to deal with. I don;t mind ordering as they wish but if you can't order through an email or over the phone it seems they may have troubles that I don't want to deal with.

    I think Sandhill simply is not a commercial hatchery and that is why they only do mail in orders. I really don't blame them. They carry a very large variety of breeds and I'm sure work there is literally sun up to sun down. Even Holderread's only do mail in orders and try to discourage lengthy phone calls. There is a reason for that. These breeders that focus on genetic diversity (which equals lots of pens, not just a handful of huge colony pens) and quality, do not have the time or resources to deal with customers the way in which assembly line hatcheries that hatch tens of thousands of birds do. It just is what it is. If I were them, I would do exactly the same thing.
