    I believe Hoffman Hatchery in Gratz, PA still hatches and ships off-season.

    Ideal Hatchery out of Texas, still hatches and ships though breeds available are limited.

    You could also check under the but sell trade forum on this site to see if anyone has any chicks for sale.

    Good luck. [​IMG]

    You can order them at Strombergs. I have had two shipments in the last two weeks - they ship on Wednesdays for arrival on Friday!
    I have been very satisfied with 100% survival!

    I had good luck last November with Privett Hatchery out of New Mexico. They still had a few rare breeds in November. The birds were beautiful. I ordered from them on the a recommendation of a farmer and was quite happy with purchase.

    I can't locate an on line Privett catalog either. I wonder if it's a glitch in the system or if we have to order a paper catalog and then submit an on line order.
