    I don't know how well versed you are at hatching biddies but first I would contact your local Land Grant college or university and ask them if they provide eggs or hatchlings. Unless you have experience hatching I would stay away from shipped eggs.

    I ordered from McMurry hatchery there birds are true to there breed.
