    I am addicted to catalogs. I love to browse through the pages and learn interesting facts about certain breeds and look at the pictures of the birds. It got me to thinking, what are your favorite poultry catalogs and why? I'll go first, mine has to be the classic Murray McMurray catalog. Lot's of good information and images of the birds.

    I prefer Cackle over McMurrays because Cackle uses real pics.

    Privett used to have a nice one but I heard they went to a very scaled back price list and I'm not sure they have that anymore.

    My catalogs are extremely dangerous. I start ordering stuff I don't need, have the money or room for. My husband get freaked out when boxes start arriving. I know I really need to go to the 12-step more often and discuss the catalog addiction. [​IMG]

    Strombergs is okay. But I have to agree on the Murray McMurray catalog, that is one you can look at until you wear out the pages![​IMG]

    The Welp Hatchery Catalog has good pictures, but they are too small... [​IMG]
