    Schlecht Hatchery or Hoover Hatchery [​IMG]

    We are planning on getting 25 meat birds, 4 sexed pullets, and 9 straight run dual purpose birds. Both hatcheries have similar prices for similar orders.

    So I was just hoping you could tell me you could tell me your opinion about them!!! [​IMG]

    Never used either one. From the prices I've seen though Hoover's looks the best, but then from where I live the shipping kinda eats you up. Might try them in the future.

    Yeah with shipping the prices for the orders we want are only $.62 apart. I'm hoping some one can tell me which had healthier and better. [​IMG]

    which hatchery is closer to you ? the less distance the chicks travel the less likely you are to have early losses.

    Schlect is closer about 150 miles away and hoover is about 290 miles away. Would that make Schlect better for us?
