Hi! So I'm thinking ahead to next year when we get more chickens I have a very specific list of breeds that I want (based on personal taste probably more than anything). Some of them I know can be bought online and shipped from hatcheries... however I wanted YOUR opinions on purchasing online vs. picking them up from a local farm. (or I will drive to get them) I am concerned because of the outbreaks of disease at some of the large hatcheries and also the travel stress on the chicks. I DO NOT want to hatch them at home... I'm no where nearly ready for that. Pros and Cons to each please! Your help is appreciated!!!!!
