    Anyone know of any reputable hatcheries that are still selling and shipping day old chicks? I found one with some GREAT prices but they stopped shipping earlier this month. I am looking for some buff orpingtons and EE mostly.

    I checked and Ideal Poultry has both EE'S and Orps. They only have a $20 minimum order, rather then a minimum chick amount. They cal their EE's Ameraucanas, but I have 2 of them and they are definitely EE's.

    How about Welp Hatchery? The shipping is included in the price you see listed for chicks. I think they ship year round, but may not have everything available.
    Or I've heard good things about Meyer Hatchery.

    Does anybody know what hatcheries are the closest to Alabama? I just moved to the NW corner of Alabama and I want to order some chicks next month after we get a house and build a coop.
    Thanks in advance...

    Meyer has both available for begining of Oct. Wait name change so type wanted may not be the same, thhis is thier site, enter type and quantity and it will tell if your choice is availabe for the date you want, if not will ask you to change quantity or ship date. I got mine from there and they all arrived healthy(in FEB)

    I ended up going with Welp Hatchery, mainly because the chicks we wanted were to hatch out on the same day.. :O)
    We have never ordered chicks before so this should be fun!! but from what I have seen on this forum there seems to be alot of great hatcheries out there..

    Chickfever, where are you located. I ship day olds and have BO and EEs. How many are you interested in? You can click on my web site under my user name on the left to look around.
