I have kept McMurray Hatchery a loved hatchery. Every time we order, the chicks are healthy, loving, fuzzy, and adorable! Once we decided to take a peek at the other online hatchery, "Cackle Hatchery". When they came in the mail, several were dead, sick, and quite a few had broken legs and one had a twisted jaw. We decided to stick with McMurray Hatchery from then on. Occasionally we would buy some chicks from Brooksher's Feed Supply so we had a guarantee they would be healthy. We would bend down near a tub of chicks, then pick them up and choose which ones we wanted. Local hatcheries and McMurray's hatchery are probably my favorite. Do you agree, too?
