It has been a couple of years since we ordered from the online hatcheries and I can't remember where I've gotten them from. It was either Meyer's, McMurray or Ideal. We had no problems with whoever it was so I would use them again and they were very good chickens. Does anyone have a preference? We are in southern Tennessee and are looking to get 10 meat birds and about 15 chickens (bantam and standard). Also, seems like a couple years ago they always threw in a "rare breed" for warmth and it usually was an extra rooster. Do you know if anyone still does that? I like the idea of FREE and we finally live somewhere where we can keep the extra rooster. Thanks for any help you can provide.
