    From breeders. Well a couple of my Polish are from a hatchery because they're my remaining hatchery gals and one Brahma, but all the rest of mine are from breeders across the US.

    The Shamos from someone in FL.

    The Araucanas mostly from a guy in SC.

    The Easter Eggers and Olive Eggers were all "made"/bred here though.

    The Marans from WA, MI, and OK.

    The Ameraucanas from WA and MD.

    The other Brahma from FL.



    Most people just get all their birds from the same source, a chosen hatchery, but I prefer getting hatching eggs or shipped adult birds from breeders.
