    Need to replace egg laying hens. Have lost 8 in last 3 months due to cayote and dog. Need to find reliable hatchery in In./Midwest area. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

    I got 25 chicks from Mt Healthy in Ohio. They were all healthy upon arrival. They are now 8 weeks and growing like weeds. The EE's are super pretty too.

    Thank-you for your help. I'll call Meyers tomorrow to see about availability. Mt. Healthy does not have 17 wk pullets just chicks.[​IMG]

    You have likely already solved your dilemma but just wanted to chime in that Cacklle Hatchery in Lebanon, Missouri is first class-- good prices, good chick quality, great selection, honest about their Easter Eggers being EEs not Ameracaunas!, better than average pullet sexing and very friendly when you order. I believe they do sometimes sell pullets.
