    Have you checked out Meyer Hatchery in Polk, OH? I'm not sure how close/far that is to you but they seem to have a good reputation with people that order from hatcheries.

    Here's their web address if you want to see what they have:

    Yes I ordered from them in the past but didn't know if they were done for the year or not. Just ordered 80 from them last night! Thank you!

    Oh gosh, Everything I still could but except french black and blue copper Marans I guess I will hatch some out. Anyways Im getting RIR, Buckeyes, Easter Eggers, Buff Orpington, Cuckoo Marans, Delaware, Golden and Silver Laced Wyandotte, New Hampshire, Mille Fleur Bearded d'Uccle, and ordered Golden and Silver Phoenix from a different hatchery also!
     
  6. Here's a little 'secret' - Wait until Monday morning - go on the Meyer site and click "Available Now" - halfway down on the left.
    Monday 7 am - 10 am or even noon - SO MANY chicks become available - but they sell quickly !! You may get your Marans yet ! I got some today - from Meyer. They weren't there yesterday . . .
