    I know breeders will have higher quality birds and hatcheries will have sexed chicks.
    What do you prefer? I wish there was a way i could get quality and sexed chicks. I am not to worried about price because any other type of bird would be hundreds of dollars.
    Can anyone suggest a hatchery or breeder? I know there is a breeder page. Can anyone give me some insight?

    You would probably get a lot of suggestions if you narrow it down by breed.
