    Hi. I ordered from McMurray last year and everyone was fine. I actually wanted to order from Meyer this year because they have more of the breeds I want. So, which one! I'm in VA.

    I would say go with who has what you want. You won't be completely happy without that one breed and you know it! :)

    I haven't had any personal experiences on this but I think Meyer is better because there is a lower minimum.

    Cackle Hatchery is good. Have ordered from them in the past. More than once.

    I was choosing from McMurray and Meyer (McMurray, because I have order there twice successfully & Meyer, because they have more of the breeds I like) at first, but Purely Poultry seems like a good site, too, with lots of breeds (and more) that I want. Again, I'm in VA, McMurray's in Iowa, Meyer's in Ohio, and Purely Poultry is in Wisconsin.
