    I've ordered from four different hatcheries, multiple times each, over the years (Dunlap Hatchery, Murray McMurray Hatchery, Ideal Poultry, and Cackle Hatchery), and have been satisfied with the birds and service of all four of them. However, Dunlap Hatchery (http://dunlaphatchery.net/) in Caldwell, Idaho is my favorite. They are a smaller hatchery than the other three (family run), but they are very friendly and helpful, and I love their birds and service. Furthermore, I have never lost a chick in shipping from Dunlap (I can't say that about any of the other three hatcheries).
