    Being new I'm not sure if there is a really great place to buy chicks and any that are not so good?
    I am looking to buy 1 of several kinds of chicks too, if that helps.

    Thank you

    Have you checked the review section?

    Generally, you will get the best results from a local breeder. However, most of the big hatcheries have good reputations, and you should get healthy chicks/ ideal layers, especially if you order from one close to you.

    Many of the big hatcheries have assortment specials.
