I've noticed that hatheries are selling out very fast for many types of poultry. 2 weeks ago I called Moyer's in PA to inquire about their meat chickens. The lady told me they ship every Wednesday and just give a weeks notice. Yesterday when I called they were sold out until the end of March! Their brown egg layers are sold out until Mid April. She said that it's gone crazy with orders and they have never seen anything like it. I called Ideal Poultry wanting something else and was told April - May. My local feedstore that sells chickens sold ove 200 chickens last week, wiping them out. The owner said she'd never seen anything like it either and the people buying them were mostly buying for meat. ( they were laying hens ) My advice is place your order now or you may find yourself waiting longer than you'd planned.
