PP & I are going to be splitting an order of meat birds. We were discussing it on another thread. I thought I'd start a new thread to ask for anyone's input. PP, being the chicken addict she is, wants to recieve the chicks the week of 7/7. That works ok for me as I'm always excited about new birds. I still wanna try the Freedom Ranger breeding stock available at http://www.jmhatchery.com but the soonest he can ship is 3 weeks. His birds are $1.75 including shipping (Qty of 50) Meyers, my prefered hatchery, has birds available the week of 7/14. They are $.86 plus shipping. Mcmurray has them available the week of 7/14 and charges $1.50 per bird. Moyers has them for $1.09 plus shipping but won't have any until August. I called each hatchery to verify availability. Any suggestions???
