    Does Ideal Poultry have their own Chantecler breeding stock or do they get hatching eggs from other sources? If anyone knows the answer I would like to know the source. Thanks!

    I like to think they have their own stock. I remember seeing a picture of their facilities and each run has their own breeds. They got a lot of birds in that place LOL! They do not own one barn full of birds but last time, it was up to three different barns. I mean HUGE barns. I think it is due to biosecurity and keeping the diseases and so forth restricted in case they do have an outbreak. Sensible thing to do.
