We recommend these hatcheries for backyard and small producers of meat chickens.
* If you are looking for an alternative to the straight cornish (white birds) below you will find some other birds we recommend for better foraging.

Clearview Hatchery
(717) 365-3234 Gratz, PA
We purchased Kosher King chicks from Clearview. They did well on our grass with LTF chick starter/grower feed.
Kosher Kings are black & white birds.

Moyers Hatchery
(215) 536-3155
A customer of LTF recommended the K-22 (red & white) for pasture raised meat birds.

Reich Hatchery
(717) 426-3411
Bard Silver would be a good choice for the backyard grower.
