    You could always start with chicks. Always remember cheaper isnt always better. You get what you pay for

    I ordered my girls from Ideal poultry. There are SO many hatcheries but I liked Ideal because I wanted a smaller order and alot of the other places make you get min 2. There are a few other hatcheries that sell smaller quantities but the price was really high. I got 10 sexed pullets for $42 that is plus shipping.

    Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan :D

    There is a section in the forum that has hatchery threads. Go to the Forum tab, and then scroll down to Breeders and hatcheries.
