    I'm planning to raise some meat birds this year and was wondering when the usual time is to order them? I'm in Ohio. I know they are at feed stores sometime in the spring but I cant recall when that is.

    We get our meat birds from Meyer hatchery around the middle of April, now that the girls are done with 4-H. This way they are ready to go by the second week of June before it gets too hot. :thumbsup
