    Yep. That is just what I was talking about. Cochins are the same way. They are supposed to be very round and full of fluff and hatchery cochins should be called something different.

    Hey, I have a few hatchery birds, too in with my layers. No biggie. But even with them, I can tell the difference when I read the SOP. Sure doesn't make me love them any less!

    Any breed in particular? I have Pekins (2 jumbo and 2 regular Pekin) and blue Swede mixes (we were told they were blue Swedes, but the girls are solid blue and the drake is half white and half blue). They are all running together. The girls just started laying 2 days ago! Also, how many would you want?

    Cami, my blue/white drake looks like a pied blue.

    And my current foster Candy...She's obsessed with the chicks....she desperately wants to play with them(and has already)


    I think there's a duck hatchery in Lancaster County that has Muscovy ducks (if that fits the bill....)

    Of course My baby with pasty butt would get a cold from the bath and dipping her head all the way under the water. the only good news is.. her butt is looking better.Now I have to deal with a chicken cold.

    I like hatchery for egg flocks. Can't really beat a white leghorn from a hatchery. I am actually waiting for TSC to bring some leghorns in so I can grab some (my girls are only hatching out super blue for me, lol). So, for egg production, go with hatchery. But if you want looks, go with a good breeder... silkies are an excellent example, even someone who's never looked at a chicken can tell the difference in quality between a good silkie and a hatchery silkie.

    I am pretty sure the Clearfield TSC had Leghorns last year. Apparently you have to keep going. They told me they have different breeds every few days as they restock, and they get what they get. I need to go this week. I will let you know if they have them.
    If that is what you were saying (that you know they will have them) I am sorry.
