Info for anyone looking for hatcheries! I went to Murray Mcmurray online today and I'm suprised at all they have available for March 8th shipments. I'm going to have concider a second order, cause they have several breeds I would love to have.
Just remember - Their "easter egg colored" Araucanas and "Americanas" are actually mutts, as hatcheries do not sell Araucanas, and "Americana" is spelled wrong.
I've gotten over 40 different birds from McMurray and, well, I think they're like any other hatchery - Something I stopped buying from. One thing I will say is that their white crested black Polish are, in the odds of 1/5 - Really nice looking, comparing to the standards. Their Silver Laced Wyandottes are not attractive (nor friendly) their Brahmas range, infact it looks like they cross them with Sussex on occasion. For anyone curious, I have the following breeds from Murray McMurray and if you want a photo example of what yours may look like, ask:
Turken / Naked Neck
Silver Laced Wyandotte
Silver Laced Polish
Easter Egger (claimed as an "Araucana/Americana")
New Hampshire Red
We also previously ordered Dark Brahmas, Buff Laced Polish, Gold Laced Polish, etc - But they all died before they were even 4 months old.
