    We are starting off the year with no chickens
    :( and were planning to hatch at least 50 (Roos will go to the freezer, hens will be raised for a dual purpose flock) but I am having a hard time figuring out where to order eggs from. I was planning gabbard farm, but am reading terrible reviews & mcmurry doesn't offer specific breed ordering.
    Anyone have any advice?? Where can I get good hatching eggs ?
    I'm thinking we may have to get some breeds as chicks and others as eggs, but I'm determined to hatch some as a project/ homeschool lesson for my little girls.

    I suggest you look in your state thread in the “Where am I? Where are you” section and post on there. You can probably find a neighbor that can help without going to a hatchery.
