I bought meat birds, and other many breeds over the last 5 or 6 years. Never had anything but good. I also order poultry supplies regularly, and nothing but good there. Once the mail lost my order of shipping boxes, and they tracked them down way over on the west coast, and I am in Louisiana. That was the U.S. Mails fault, not Mayers. 

  Our small farm is on a ridge in the cypress swamps of Louisiana..
We have been blessed with French Marans,  English Orpingtons, Flying Mallards, Ancona Ducks, American Buff Geese, Mini Schnauzers, and a loving God.

Myers Poultry Farm does not have 'colorful broilers'. They only have Cornish Cross.

Did you perhaps mean Meyer Hatchery? They have Rainbow Rangers. They are good meat birds, with a decent growth rate. And you can keep any hens you'd like for egg laying.

They aren't really "colored broilers" they are colored meat birds.

It appears from their online catalog, that those aren't really 'meaties'. Those are more likely the cross breeds that they do every now and then to boost egg production in the more common breeds. Usually, first and second generation chicks are useless to them. But they've found a way to market them and make some money. They will grow faster than the average 'pure' breed bird, but they aren't going to be quite the same as Cornish Cross.

And their Kosher King/Gray Meat birds look like typical Black sexlink cockerels, but with a fancy name.

I have actually ordered the Kosher kings from another hatchery before and the are very good meat birds and the Cornish cross also come in pullets so they can't be Black sex links.
