Where can I find day-old chicks for pastured poultry production?

F.C.AlabamaAnswer: Any type of chick can be pastured or have outdoor access after brooding when it has grown feathers. A 2007 list of hatcheries that provide both chicks for meat production and for egg production, as well as duo-purpose breeds, is available at Hatcheries and Poultry Equipment Supply Houses, www.feathersite.com/Poultry/BRKHatcheries.html. The list is organized by state.
