    I've been looking mostly at Meyer Hatchery. I'm only getting 6 chickens, they are: Black Australorp, Buff Orpington, Dominique, Easter Egger, Salmon Faverolled, and White Cochin. The biggest problem I've been running into is order minimum. I've also been trying to find local hatcheries. (Southeastern MI) I also only want females. Roosters aren't allowed in our area. It would be so sad getting rid of a chicken, so a hatcher that has more accurate sexing would be fantastic!

    I used Murray McMurray hatchery out of Iowa. I am happy with their chicks. My hens are now 25 weeks old, all is well. I also got all of those breeds except the faverolle. They do have those though. I will use them again this spring.
