    What is the best hatchery to order chicks from?

    Everyone will have a different opinion. Most of the larger hatcheries seem fairly equitable. I like Meyer/MPC, because I've received good service from them and have always liked my chicks/chickens that came from them. Others will say the same about the other hatcheries I'm sure. Only a few of them ship small orders, so take that into consideration. And then look at who has the breeds you want when you want them. Keep in mind that hatchery birds (which are fine birds IMO) won't be at the standards of most breed specific breeders.

    I was very happy with my order of chicks from Cackle Hatchery. I had called them at 3:30 pm on a Wednesday and they got my order out THAT DAY and I rec'd my chicks on Friday.
