    Are there any Chicken Breeders & Hatcheries located close to Loranger, LA in Tangipahoah parish in Louisiana? I sure would appreciate some help on this subject. I am totally new to this website and trying to learn my way around it.

    Thank you very much,
    Burger Bob

    I'm just up the road from you in Liberty, MS

    I ordered 25 birds from a hatchery in Iowa that shipped Tuesday and I received them yesterday (Thursday)

    Closest hatchery I know of is Ideal in TX. Our Co-Op gets chicks from there, as I bought some there in March.

    Actually I would be looking for Rhode Island Reds, Ameraucanas and maybe some Black Austrolops. I currently have 6 Rhode Islands, 5 pullets and a rooster, which I really did not want a rooster yet and the same number of Americacaunas, 5 pullets and a rooster which I didn't want as well. I currently live in a subdivision with neighbors right on top of me. So I imagine they don't care for the roosters crowing, but in about 4 to 5 months I am moving to a 5 acre plot of land in Loranger, LA with my father. There I will want to expand my flock to eventually about 30 to 50 birds. I am only allowed 12 currently where I live.
