    Looking to order some sexlink and/or leghorn chicks, pullets probably.

    Anyone know the hatchery (that ships) with the best price on them?

    TIA! [​IMG]

    Oh my heck! That IS an awesome price! Wonder if I can find someone that wants to go in on an order with me. I was thinking 15 or so...not 100. [​IMG]

    Have you ever bought from them? Thanks so much! :)

    We did Cornish Cross from them last year, everything went very well.

    Scroll down the page a bit

    "ORDERS OF LESS THAN 100 CHICKS - Add $4.00"

    Give them a call and see what they can do.

    Awesome! Thanks so much! I may just go ahead and order the 100 and see if I can't sell the extras on craigslist. We'll see. I was looking around...can you only order over the phone or do they take on-line orders?

    I'm excited! THanks! [​IMG] Now to make a chicken tractor before I get too big and awkward to build! [​IMG]

    I would order from Townline Hatchery at least for your sex links. They sell Isa browns. Their breeders come direct from the large comercial breeding farm in Canada. I beleive that most hatcherys make they own sex links which will not match Isa browns production.

    I get all my comets from Ideal. They are great to work with and have great customer service. They have a min of $20 not a min of birds.

    And you can order less than 100 from Central hatchery.
    I'm looking into buying about 50. There have been so many people wanting to buy my chickens this year that I suppose I should just have a pen of pullets for sale. If they don't sell then I can always sell the eggs since my client list is growing.
