    I've never ordered from a hatchery and want to get some broilers. I don't want to get run through the wringer (so to speak). If you've had a good experience please let me know. Thanks!

    I have gotten the BBQ Special (NOT the Frying Pan Special) from Murray McMurray and I was very happy with them. Next time I am going to try Welp just to compare.

    I have ordered from Central Hatchery. They ship everywhere.
    I ordered 100 and got 103 & 1 DOA. They have been eating and growing fast. $65.00 per hundred. +shipping +- $17.00

    I will reorder again in the Spring.
    Good luck.

    I got 100 from Townline in Michigan. Got 105 and no DOA's. $13 shipping.

    They are 9 wks old tomorrow and ready for processing. These are the Vantress Cross. Awesome to raise and grew like crazy.

    They ship meaties all year too. Which is a plus.

    I ordered my broilers from McMurray and was pleased. Next year I'll be trying Moyer because they're closer so I'm hoping it'll be less stress on the chicks.
