ordering chicks
We have gone the farm store route too and had great success with the birds we purchase, but we like to get birds year round which means ordering them. There are dozens of hatcheries around the US offering a giant assortment of chicks, and as reputable as they may all be we have 2 that we prefer...Murray McMurray and Ideal Poultry. MM is a huge operation and have very rare chicks if you are looking for that sort. Ideal is my favorite because if you have an issue and you call them, someone from inside the hatchery picks up the phone and chats with you. VERY personal. I recommend an assortment from either, then add a couple of Silver Wyandottes (the b/w chicken). If you have the room and can handle the 25 chick minimum, you get the best deals.
