    I think it would be a miracle to find any within in the next two months.

    If you ordered them RIGHT NOW from McMurray, you'd be looking at the last part of April, first part of May.

    It couldn't hurt to make an order with them... they'll tell you when the delivery date is and who knows, it could be as early as the latter part of January, but... I have my doubts.

    Privett Hatchery in Portales, NM or Hoover's Hatchery in Rudd, IA both are hatcheries that hatch year round, though I don't know which breeds they necessarily hatch all year. When I used to be a dealer for Hoover, I know they hatched the Black Australorps all year round as well as broilers and Cal. Whites. They then would start hatching their other breeds in Jan or Feb.. Anyway, give Mary at Hoover's a call and ask her or check out the websites from either hatchery. They're fine and helpful people producing wonderful chicks.
