    I live in Montgomery County Maryland. Last year me and my family went to the local Tractor Supply co and got our 6 chicks. This year we want to order different breeds of chicks that Tractor Supply does not offer, we are only aloud to get 6 chickens but we have family friends who can take 9 so we would have a order of 15 chicks. Does anyone know a good hatchery I could order from? Like Mcmurray or is that too far for the chicks to survive?

    I live in WA state and usually order from McMurrary but there are a lot of other hatcheries out there.. Meyer hatchery, MyPetChicken, I know there are a ton of others but those are the ones I know of off hand.

    Thanks! I've never ordered chicks and reading bad reviews of multiple hatcheries is making me a bit nervous!

    read the warranties, some hatcheries will send replacement chicks if any die during shipping and up to so many days after receiving.
