What is your favorite hatchery and why?
Ideal Hatchery in Texas.
I have two beautiful, healthy flocks from them. One is three years old, the other 8 months old.
I had the best luck with Meyer. Best prices I found anywhere.
Ideal was good to me. I found that ideal was cheaper than meyer.
5 leghorn hens, 12 young leghorn hens, 3 black stars, 3 red stars, 2 silkies, 1 cohin
I like Mc Murray and My Pet Chickenl. I had a bad experince with Ideal.
I love the Isa Browns from Townline Hatchery located in Zeeland, Michigan.
Ideal is my hatchery!They have a huge selection of breeds I can choose from (including some rare ones) and also they have waterfowl and game birds.They have a minimum of $25 spent so you can order about 7 or so chickens which is really nice for people wanting a small flock.
I ordered from Stromberg's on Dec. 1st, they arrived on Dec 3rd. Out of 25, 1 died on the 3rd day, the rest are VERY healthy. I have been told they drop ship, but I don't care where they come from as long as they live and are healthy.
I'm getting my chicks from My Pet Chicken, so hopefully it'll be a good experience for me, and for my babies!
I used Welp last year and was very satisfied. I also use Central Hatchery for my broilers since they are just a few miles away and have been happy with their birds. This year I ordered replacement layers from Ideal, not because I don't like Welp , but to get a different strain of birds for breeding purposes. We'll see how Ideal does, so far I'm impressed with their customer service.
