    Hello,

    I live in BC, Canada and I've been having some difficulties ordering chicks already this year. I have now placed an order with Performance Poultry, today he called and moved my order back from May2/3 to the 30/31 because he had alot of orders and to ensure I got all the breeds I wanted. I just checked the invoice and the birds I ordered as "sexed chicks" on the website and the price list, say pullets on the invoice. I will check with him tomorrow (at a decent hour) if they are chicks or pullets. However, now i'm getting worried that these are red flags and i should just order somewhere else, as I haven't paid my deposit yet.
    If anyone can share their experiences with me that would be greatly appreciated! Maybe I am just worrying too much.
    Thought I would check with some experts first :)

    Thank you all in advance,
    Amanda

    I'm glad to hear that.
    I can't believe how little hatcheries are in Canada. The closest place to order an incubator for me is Alberta. I couldn't believe it, just imagine the shipping! That's why I got some silkies instead lol
    I feel alot better, thanks so much!
