    Does anyone know where to get Silver Sebring chicks? I'm in Fresno, CA and can only find them on Cackle..

    I think what you're looking for are silver sebright chicks. They are carried at many hatcheries, such as Cackle, Ideal, McMurray, etc. Or you could look for a local breeder in the California state thread.

    U can try Ideal Poultry, but there is a 25 dollar minimum order. Got my two chicks from them yesterday.

    I've never had chickens before so I've been researching a lot and have seen a lot of bad things about ideal

    Ideal's fine, I ordered from them just earlier this month and all the chicks arrived healthy and happy. And I've ordered from them several times of the past years and never had a problem. You have to remember, people are far more likely to post about a negative experience than they are to post about a positive one, so you're almost always gonna see more negative stuff than positive.

    I agree with Pyxis, I got a total of 9 chicks from my order and there just fine.

    That's very true, I'm going to try belt hatchery first since they're in my town but if it doesn't work out, I'll try ideal :)
