Heard that site is a broker they take orders and the birds come from meyer hatchery possible other hatcheries. They dont actually hatch chicks at mypetchicken they broker them from other hatcheries. U probably will be fine but next time order direct from hatchery best option. I think they use meyer hatchery images of chickens to select from.

Oh well that disappoints me. This is the first time I used them. I order the first 6 chickens from cackle hatchery. My pet chicken was the only sight that I could get chicks that I wanted at the same time.

We have 3 Jubilees and 3 more coming from a different line. We really like the blues too but are limited on space. Chocolate buffgs look great too

They're not a broker, but they do share physical space with Meyer. I had an excellent experience with MPC and so have many other people. Very nice people in their customer service department as well.
