I recently became very interested in raising chickens. I currently have 7 hens and one rooster to start in a 16' x 8' enclosure. After my many hours of searches, I have found it difficult to locate hatcheries near the Houston area. I found Mcmurray Hatcheries on the net and they sell rare breeds of birds that I am very interested in unfortunately they are shipped by mail. I would prefer selecting the birds myself and would rather NOT!! do mail order. Can anyone help??
