How did your hatchery chicks turn out when matured?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have an order coming from MMc hatchery of light brahmas, buff orps, and blue Andalusians. I've never ordered from a hatchery so I don't know what to expect as far as correctness for breed type goes. I am not looking for show birds, they will be pets, but just wondering if the hatchery birds are mostly true to type, somewhat off, or way off as some people have indicated on here. Anyone on here have some pics of their mature hatchery light brahmas or buff orps to share? I wanted large gentle birds (with the exception of the Andalusians). We're their temperaments correct for the breed overall?

Thank you for the response. Good to know. I originally ordered the Wyandottes but changed them out for the buffs. Thanks again!
