    I'm in a quandry(nice word,eh?) I was looking at the Townline Hatchery website and I can't find all the chicks that we were hoping to raise.
    We would like Australorps, Delawares, EE's, P Rocks, Red or Blackstars, Sussex and/or Welsummer.I can find some but not all. We like the variety of all the looks and they all look to do good in our winter weather. I haven't gone to TSC yet to see what they have, but I know they get their chicks from Townline,( up here anyway). Anybody have any suggestions:confused::confused::confused:

    I like Ideal Poulty - have always gotten great service and had good luck with their birds.

    Cackle, Ideal, Meyer, and Murray McMurray all seem to be good, reliable hatcheries with a good variety of breeds. I don't know from personal experience though, just BYC:idunno
