    Who would be a great hatchery or even breeder to buy show quality eggs off of. I didn't know anything about chickens when I first got them but now I'm a little bit more in the know and would like to get into showing chickens but mine just don't have the looks. I ordered mine from randalburkley and didn't even think twice about it. [​IMG]

    Hatcheries don't generally carry show-quality stock - you may get lucky, but I wouldn't count on it.

    Look around for a member who talks about showing their birds and if they've done well, see if they sell hatching eggs.

    Subscribe to the Poultry Press . If you are wanting show quality then I would buy adult birds and hatch from them. Just because chicks come from SQ parents does not mean they themselves will be SQ.

    what all does the poultry press have on it? It seems to be pretty cheap if your getting good stuff
