    I've been reading the horror stories on the forum of chicks being shipped and I'm trying to avoid that while still getting some chicks I don't think the feed stores will get. What I'm looking for are.....d Uccles, silkies (my boyfriend wants these badly and prefers whites), frizzles, cochins, cubalayas, and Polish or Sultans. With how close our neighbors are we really want to stick to pullets, but if we've got to get straight runs, then that's what we'll do. We'd either sell, give away, or eat the roos. I really wish we had had more than 1/2 an acre so I could keep the roos and have baby chicks running around.

    I will be checking out the one in Everett and Snohomish, they are the closest ones to me, thank you so much. We'll also be going to a show in March to meet some other breeders and may find what we want there.

    A feed store that I love is the one called Monroe Farm and Feed. They are in Monroe, LOL, right next to the evergreen state fair grounds. They have a HUGE selection of chicks, in the last few years at least, that do include silkies, banties, EE's, assorted egg layers, meat birds, and so on. I want to say they may already have chicks and if not, within the next month for sure. They are very nice from my experience and are family owned at my last knowledge. They are awesome too in that they make sure everyone who walks out the door with a meat bird KNOWS that it is a meat bird and not meant to be a pet. Sure prevents heartbreak when an unsuspecting buyer wants two chicks for eggs, and 10 weeks later, learns they were to be on a table weeks ago.

    LOL

    That is funny. Maybe you can ask them if they are willing to add the chicks of your choice onto an order? Never tried that myself.

    Quote:I will second that. Kim & Barry are great folks and they keep their facilities clean and well maintained. They are also very attentive to the chicks. Of all the feedstores I've been to, and I've been two at least a half dozen around here, I would highly recommend them above all.

    Just be advised of one thing, their "Ameraucanas" aren't Ameraucanas but are Easter Eggers.

    God Bless,

    Harders hatchery in Ritzville has been closed for a few years now, and I am hearing rumors that Phinney hatchery in Walla Walla is closing down this year too.
