    Just read a couple of threads from this and other sites complaining on Ideal and some other hatcheries being sold out. Wow, I guess everyone bought early. This is the second year I have seen this since the economy took a dump. Are people buying to have food at home or is this something else? I know I am also seeing alot more gardens and those that already had then expanded again. So if big hatcheries and small sell out I guess local sellers will do good. What you think has anyone benifited from this yet?
