    We are new and were looking at some of the hatcheries, most don't seem to be shipping now or have many.
    Are there any that have a large variety now or best wait for january and they will add more to their sites?
    ThX in advance

    Most hatcheries this time of year do not hatch out chicks...It's too cold to ship til Spring....Look at McMurray Hatchery site...they are now showing what they will hatch and doing orders for their Spring chicks...I'm sure Ideal and the rest will follow soon.....
  3. i peeked on mypetchicken.com recently and they are stating no chicks until February. My experience from last year is to order early as they run out of specialty birds quickly.
