    Do you get hatcheries in the UK that do mail order chicks and other poultry the same as in the US like Cackle? [​IMG]

    I am sure UK hatcheries will ship their chicks in their country or nearby countries if they indicated they ship outside of England like Scotland, Wales and Ireland. All you need to do is to contact them.

    For our US hatcheries to ship chicks to UK or other foreign countries, no, they do not ship.

    There should be some breeders in UK that sell chicks and hatching eggs.

    Whereabouts in the UK are you? There are loads of breeders around the UK selling just about any breed you want!

    www.preloved.co.uk has lots of adverts on it. Just put in your nearest town/city and search for the breed you want, and some adverts should come up. It depends on how rare to breed is.

    Thank you everyone for the help [​IMG] I'm on the west coast of scotland so it would be Inverness and around that area that I'd be looking but not as far east as Aberdeen. I'll take a look at the links, thank you [​IMG]

    I have already contacted that breeder and a few others around Inverness but a lot either dont have the birds I'm looking for and as with this breeder, a lot have lost nearly all their stock to predators sadly [​IMG] But thank you for sending me the link and taking the time to look for it for me [​IMG]

    We don't have hatcheries like the US, which IMHO is a good thing. What breeds are you looking for and I can maybe help you source some?
