    I'm looking either Freedom Ranger Hatchery, or MT-DI for ordering my Spring hatch of FR's.

    The price difference is .30/bird and though I like to consider a savings, I also don't want to necessarily save at one end for some other comprise at the other that may have been worth the extra few bucks.

    Any experiences/thoughts on these two hatcheries?

    Thanks

    My neighbor and I are raising our first meaties this spring and ordered from FR hatchery . They came on time, and after four weeks we've only lost one out of the 26 they shipped, and the order was for 25 so we're on target. Great service from FR prior to shipping the chicks too.

    No experience with the other hatchery.

    I ended up putting in an order with FR hatchery for a late May delivery. I'll see how things go and update the progression.
