    I'm thinking of ordering some chicks. There are some colors/sexes that I simply can't find in my area, and I am not having good luck with eggs. Are there any hatcheries that have good quality chicks? I'm looking for OEGB, Dutch, BTW and BTB Japs, and blue bantam cochins. I just can't find what I'm looking for in my area.

    Please move this if not in the right forum [​IMG]
