Murray McMurray Hatchery

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I'm ordering 7-8 chicks that are 4 weeks old from Murray McMurray hatchery.  I'll be getting 1 EE, 1 White crested polish, 1 Golden Laced Polish, 1 White Leghorn, 1 Buff Orpington, 1 Black Australorp, 1 Columbian Wyandotte,  and possibly a light Brahma for my local 4H group.  Has anybody had any experience with McMurray hatchery?  Especially these breeds?

MMH is a nice hatchery. Healthy birds and good customer service. The quality of their birds (in terms of appearance and adherence to the breed standards) is rather low, but if you only want the fowl for egg laying and pets that shouldn't be a problem.

200 something birds. 8 species. ♥ Norman ♥ Norma ♥ Misha ♥ and ♥ Taylor ♥ are my babies.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
