    Hello, I just started my flock with 4 hens and am looking to expand it come spring time and was wondering if anyone knew of any hatcheries in Colorado and if they were any good?
    Thanks!

    Besides the fact that I've only found one hatchery on Colorado, based on the website, it didn't look very professional. I look at people's spelling and grammer, and base alot of what I think of them on that until I meet them in person. The best I've gotten chicks from is Cackle hatchery, which is in Lebanon, MO. If you really want to get some in state though, there's Summer Rose Farm's and Hatchery in Strasburg, and a google search will turn up a few more.
    Good luck!

    There are plenty of people who raise a few breeds but none that i would classify as a hatchery. (15+ breeds on a large scale) There was someone in N Larimer county and Larry's in Brush but they both disappeared 3-5 years ago. There are some farms in the Denver area who claim to raise chicks but their stock is coming from the mega hatcheries. There are a few on the CO thread that raise chicks. I will have EE and maybe lav and black split for lav ameraucana eggs in the spring.
    What breeds are you looking for? Remember that any chicks locally hatched will be straight run too.
