    My daughter is entering her first fair and we decided to start out with chickens for the meat market. Can someone recommend me to a good website or if anyone is mailing. I usually never do mail but i need them soon. Thanks

    Most of the hatcheries require a 25 chicks minimum purchase...

    Welp hatchery is a good place to get Males only or straight run ..the price you get includes shipping

    Ideal poultry is good place to buy since they only require a $25 dls minimum purchase
    this is good if you only need few chicks

    Mcmurray hatchery is expensive I really dont get meat birds from them

    Personally it dont matter were you get your birds from

    what will make this birds show quality is the care you will provide

    shelter and diet

    Most Tractor Supply and other feed stores have chicks right now, and every TSC I've been to has Cornish X meat birds.
