I saw a question in a posting if a chicken was Hatchery or Purebred. Whats the difference? Are hatchery chickens purebred? So if my kids want to show chickens in 4-H where do I need to get them from? Are hatchery chicks okay or do I need to find someone who "specializes" in that breed? I gotta make a new thread, to many questions that this one is setting off in my head!
