I am wanting to buy some baby chickens to expand our small flock on our mini farm and i was looking for 25-30 chickens and first of all we started looking late we talked with McMurray hatchery and they were out of quite a few breeds and they had a wait of about 2 months. We were hoping to get the chicks in April and sooner the better so we can raise them inside and have them outside as soon as the snow goes away here in Minnesota. We have a subscription to Backyard Poultry and in there was a ad for Welp Hatchery that like Mcmurray was in Iowa. But they could get the chicks here in the later part of April and not late May. So we spoke with them and it sounded like they were the better choice even though they had a minimum of 5 chickens per breed. Then as i was looking at the back of the magazine and i saw a small ad for Urch/Turnlund Poultry, and they operate a hour from me, and they have many breeds. But.... They had no website and they have no email, the only information they publicly displayed is their phone number. And after looking for their website on google i saw another ad for them and they only want calls between 7-9pm. I thought all of this is very strange because normally if you work with the internet you think its a scam but this is dealing with chickens so i doubt thats likely. What i am now thinking is they are just a family farm, be all that as it may while i was looking around for any information on them, i really couldnt find any information on them except that there were brief references to them in someones journal on saving a chicken breed. Has anyone worked with them before? If so how was the experience and how were their fowl? If you have worked with any other breeders or hatcheries in the midwest, how was your experience? And who did you work with? Thanks for any help you can offer!
