Compare Mcmurray to Cackle to Ideal for chicks
I'm thinking of the best selection of chicks to order for a May delivery and I thought I'd ask the forum for advice and experience with the 3 above mail order sources.
Here's what I wantto ultimately end up with-all hens:
several Ameraucanas/Araucanas/EE, whatever's for colored eggs
a silkie or 2
a buff orp or 2
several other unusual colored bantams
The balance of a 25 chick order would probably be either split with someone else or given away/sold.
The issues that I see with all of these guys is getting the least number of cockerels in the order and not having to order 25 silkies (McMurray) to get the couple hens that I'd like.
I checked Garden watchdog and they ranked Ideal/Cackle/Mcmurray best to worst.
What has been your experiences? Who would you recommend?
