    I am ordering 4 chicks from Lebanon Hatchery, and just wondering if any one has any experience with them, good or bad?
    They seem great from their website, but you know how that goes....what they say on a website isn't always how they are in reality.
    I would love any feedback is possible!
    Thanks!!!

    I think they are pretty new-just saw them for the first time last year. Not sure how they are, but seems like the chicks would be happier than if you shipped long distance or bought at the feed store. The McMinnville Wilco will special order breeds for you though. I know a lady who was getting all sorts of breeds through them. Silverton Wilco will only special order a few laying breeds they already supply and straight run-mixed bantams.

    Do you know if you can order sexed chicks from Wiloc??
    That would be GREAT if I could get them in town!
    Thanks for the idea coffeemama!!

    Yes you can order pullets of large fowl like RIR ect. The woman I talked with was more than happy to deal with Wilco in McMinnville [​IMG]

    I did get a reply from Lebanon Hatchery, they said the ones I want will be available mid-March, but I also went to the Wilco here in McMinnville today, and they will get the same chicks in, at the same time, for less than half the price, and I don't have to drive over an hour to get them! I think I'll stick with the local Wilco! Thanks for all your help!!!

    Thanks! I still have to wait a month though.....bummer!
    I had some ordered last week from a gal on craigslist, but they didn't survive the shipping.....poor babies!
    Now I have to wait, BUT my brooder won't be empty for long!!!
