    Around me, all I can get from TRUSTED hatcheries, are: Buff Orpingtons, Silver Laced Wyandottes, Golden Laced Wyandottes, California Grey Leghorns, Light Brahamas, Rhode Island Reds, ISA Browns, Barred Rocks, Araucanas, Black Australorps, and of course, the Bantams as far as chickens go. I'm looking for other breeds, like Silkies, etc.. Anyone know of any hatcheries in Michigan or other states that will ship that carry something other than the above breeds? I like our duck selection of Indian Runners, Pekins, and Rouens, though would like to get a Muscovey (sp?) if I could. We have White and Bronze turkeys for a selection. Just wondering! Thanks!

    That's a little far from me, but, thanks! I did find some hatcheries that are out of state, but will ship, and they are decently priced and have some really cool looking birds. Just have to wait until they are in stock! lol Mt. Healthy, McMurray, and Ideal are three I have found.

    Would you be willing to ship?

    Sure, if you're willing to pay! [​IMG]
    My silkie roo "Cinnamon" isn't fertile yet but should be by spring. As soon as my splash girl starts laying, I may purchase a good quality blue or splash rooster for her. Check out my site.
