Just ordered Gold Wyandottes from Meyers - Page 3

post #21 of 22

I have been very pleased with Myers as well. Ordered large layers before, and have chicks due in tomorrow. I am sure you will be pleased with them. If not, they will make it right for you..  Good luck....

7 RIR's Hens, 2 B.O.'s Hens, 1 B.O. "Frizzle Roo", 1 Americauna Hen, 1 Mystery Hen,  2 Golden Lace Wyandottes, 2 Cats, 1 Dog, and a great woman by my side.. Life is good!

I used 1.5" couplers.  They were $1.45 at Home Depot.  The chicks took less than 5 minutes to figure them out.  No waste, though they can't get to the feed below the bottom of the coupler right now, so I have to pour it out and then on top of new feed so it gets used up.  I started them on these feeders at four days old.

RSL, Buffs, RIR, Amber Rocks and GLWs. Three turkeys getting ready for Thanksgiving.  One GLW Rooster crowing over them all.
