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.

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.
A customer of LTF recommended the K-22 (red & white) for pasture raised meat birds.
Bard Silver would be a good choice for the backyard grower.
Processing Your Birds
Have you ever considered processing your own birds? We built and used the whiz bang chicken plucker for processing our birds. (picture attached) Instructions for building the chicken plucker are at www.whizbangbooks.com.
