    Just wondered. I like MPC, even though they order from other hatcheries, my birds that came from it are very pretty, sweet, and good layers.

    But, if I had to pick 1 commercial hatchery, it would be Ideal. You can't beat their customer service.

    Cackle always gave me the least amount of hassle, but I don't order from any hatchery anymore. I order from SQ breeders here on BYC!

    I like my livingroom. That's my favorite hatchery. And Gryeyes' house. I've gotten some good birds from her. LOL.

    In seriousness, I have never ordered from a hatchery, but I have personally bought chicks at local feed stores that came from Belt Hatchery in Fresno, and I have always had good luck with those chickens. I know others who can say the same.
