Put in my order for 100 meat chickens from Central, only $80 plus shiping for them. Hatch date will be 21 March ... Got to say that both times I have called them (once for Q&A and once to order) I have been very impressed with what I have heard. In my opinion they are a no frills hatchery, seems that the same guy answers the phone and I think he might be the owner. Did mail order DP last year so decided to try straight meats this year for comparison. The kids got too attached to the DP and made slaughter day hard for the roos they got attached to. Going to keep the brooder outside so I think that will help with the attachement as well.
