Raising chickens is fun and exciting & there are so many places to buy birds of all different kinds from. A good place many people start is the BYC Buy - Sell - Trade Forum section. So we would like to find out: Where Do You Get Your Chicks From?
(Check out more exciting Official BYC Polls HERE!)
Thanks so much for using my poll idea!!!
I get mine from a breeder sometimes...
But usually I get them from a private business (not a hatchery or a feed store).
May I suggest something? @BYC Project Manager , just an idea: maybe add the option in the poll: private business?
Just an idea!
Currently we get most of our chicks from the feed store and a few from breeders.
Soon I will be getting some breeder quality Ayam Cemani eggs from someone to hatch out under a broody once the hen goes broody.
I get hatching eggs shipped to me from random sellers on eBay mostly. It allows me to get the breeds I want at ( sometimes) reasonable prices and I have gotten pretty good at hatching shipped eggs . Also have gotten hatching eggs from Deer Run Farm in Maryland, and chicks from a local Rural King and Meyer Hatchery in the past.
