    I'm trying to order buff orpington pullets and light brahma pullets and two cockerels. However, I've called several places (Meyer, Mt. Healthy and Cackle) and they're all sold out until May.

    Where else should I call to try to get these chicks ordered? I wanted a total of 30 pullets and 2 roosters.

    Thanks so much for any suggestions!

    Hi fellow Kentuckinan! Have you checked your local TSC? The Georgetown one just got chicks in today and had Light Brahmas. I didn't see any Buff Orps, although their flyer says they will have some. Each store gets different varieties I think so you might get lucky and be able to pick up what you want locally.[​IMG]

    Have you checked with McMurray Hatchery? I know they carry both of these breeds.

    thanks - mcmurray's website says they are sold out of pullets until may. I haven't checked with my local TSC but I might just drive to Georgetown to get those.

    Sigh. I called several TSC's, including the one in Georgetown, and they said they didn't have light brahmas.

    I'd just go check, since I know the salespeople aren't always chick savvy, but it's an hour away to drive there.

    I guess I'll just order and wait until late April for the next delivery most places have available. Has anyone used Cackle? I think I'll order there.

    Did you try Privett? That's where my feedstore orders from and I know they have gotten the Brahmas in.


    Good luck!

    Keep in mind that Privett's prices are " postage paid"
