This is the time of year folks are buying chicks to add or start their folks with. Keep this in mind when you look to buy. . .hatchery stock is NOT a good representation of the breed at it's best or even close. They will lack size, color and overall quality. Not only this. . .the hatchery operations typically are not humane and rarely sustainable. Find a quality breed to buy all of your livestock from, and this should include poultry!
