Great thanks! Were do you get your chickens?
I've heard about Murray McMurray Hatchery! I just checked out there website. they have good prices! They only have chicks, right? Do you have any advice for raising baby chicks? I have read a lot of stuff for raising baby chicks! I feel like it will be a lot of work and money to have baby chicks.
I buy from breeders all across the US. Either hatching eggs, chicks, or adult birds and have them shipped to me or meet them if they are in driving distance. Or I go to some of the poultry show and buy from other show breeders.
Cool! I might try ordering chickens or chicks from Murray McMurray Hatchery this Spring! Have you ordered from them before?
What are your favorite breeds of chickens?
I would recommend Ideal first and Cackle second. The vast majority of the McMurray birds I've seen matured to be poor representatives of there breeds. And McMurray's prices are high for what you get. They've gone to quantity over quality. But I'll get down off my soapbox now lol.
Brahmas, Spitzhaubens, Sumatras, English Orpingtons, Swedish Flowers, Iowa Blues would be my top six.
Ohh... Ok! I wondered about the prices!! I'll check it out! Thanks so much for your information that you gave me! I really appreciate it!
Were do you get your chickens? Are bantams and Orpingtons a good cold hardy good egg laying breed?
What breed would you guys recommend? What I'm worried about is that do I need to get the same breed of chickens that I have know? The chickens that I get this spring will they get along with my other chickens?
