    In the past I went through Hoover Hatchery. But I have variety I am looking for-
    Buckeyes, Brahma, Americana, Bantam

    Suggestions of a reputable place?

    Thanks in advance!

    This is a very subjective question. I've ordered with great success from Murray McMurray and Meyer, and have gotten feed-store chicks that were Mt. Healthy and Cackle. I've only ever lost about six total chicks in the couple hundred I've brooded, and I've never gotten a cross billed or spraddle-legged chick. Others have not had such good luck.

    Rather than have this thread here, however, I'd post in the Chicken Breeders and Hatcheries thread (https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/16/chicken-breeders-hatcheries). That's the best place for this question.
