I live in New Mexico, about 5 hours from Privett. The logical thing for me to do was to order from them, as they are the closest hatchery to me. However, Privett refused to sell to me because it would take business away from local feed stores. So, I purchased my 125 birds from Townline Hatchery instead, and had a great experience with them. Makes me mad that I could not buy from them. I don't want to pay inflated prices at a feed store, and besides, there was not one feed store around that could get that many chicks at one time.
