My Pet Chicken (Hatchery)

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Is it me, or is it kind of odd that the Hatchery "My Pet Chicken" takes pictures of Meyers Hatchery and sells their birds?  Also, the prices are unbelievably high.  

 

What are peoples experiences with the "My Pet Chicken" Hatchery?







 

post #2 of 8

I haven't personally ordered from MPC but it's my understanding they are a sort of "middle man"...they get chicks from various hatcheries and sell them. The only reason I haven't ordered from them isn't because of their chick prices (I don't think they're any better or worse than other places) but their shipping prices were too much for me.

 

A lot of folks have used them so hopefully someone will come along with more first hand info. Also, if you put My Pet Chicken in the search box, you'll find posts about them.

I pre-ordered my chicks from them for next spring and i got 7 chickens and that cost was around 20$ then the shipping put it up to 70$.Besides that they supposedly have great customer service and there website is really easy to use.

I like them a lot.  I've had nothing but positive experiences with them, their customer service, and the accuracy of my orders. Alex, from @MyPetChicken has explained the relationship between them and other hatcheries very well.  I'll see if I can find that post and share the link to it here.

When I was brand new to chicken ownership, I loved their site - tons of great info, very concise and well ordered. I also love their "how to tell a cockerel from a pullet" info better than any other. But, when I put together a possible order to check on price, shipping was astronomical (almost double my chick costs).

My Pet Chicken and Meyer Hatcher have a partnership that allows us to ship from their facility. We do own our own flocks and sell many breeds that they do not carry.

Absolutely, Alex. Um, does this mean I can stop poking around looking for the thread where you explained that before?  :lau
