I want to get chicks in about a month, but all the hatcheries say that they are out of stock until the spring. I know it is an awkward time to be buying but it is the soonest I am ready for them, and I want them laying by July. There is a place near me, but they charge $12.50 a bird . Anyone know of any good hatcheries that ship out birds this time of year? Breeds would be the common brown layers, RIR, BR, RS, BS, BO.
