    Hi we have several chickens. We live in the northern Kansas City, MO area. I am trying to find a hatchery that is close and reliable.

    We have 15 chickens that are about 4 months old and four that are 3 months old.

    Americanas that may be EE
    White Leghorns
    Black Cochins
    Giant Black Austrolorps
    Buff Orphingtons
    Barred Rock
    Silver Wyandottes

    We are picking up 4 lavender orpingtons and two speckled sussex tomorrow. SO EGGCITED!

    Anyone know of any hatcheries that aren't all the way to Columbia or Topeka??

    Hi, welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    The state link you got from @Yorkshire coop is a good place to check. I'm not sure how far Lebanon is from you but Cackle Hatchery is there.
    http://www.cacklehatchery.com/

    Hope you find what you are looking for, love to see a photo of your birds.

    Nice to have you here!

    Are Black australorps coming in Giant size now? I guess everything is being supersized. Welcome to Backyard chickens
