I got 7 from MPC in June, a mixed batch of silkies and large fowl. Staff were friendly and helpful on the phone, placing the order and changing it were relatively easy.
They shipped from Ohio on a Monday, arrived in CT 6am Wednesday. All healthy. The only problem is that at least one of my 3 large fowl looks to be a cockerel. Getting a free chick in the future doesn't help as we don't have space for a whole new order and they can't safely ship one or two. Oh well - no one can guarantee sexing. Just hoping it's only the one, but with the silkies we won't know for a while. We did choose MPC based on the no-packing-peanuts policy and the small minimums....and the clincher was the sexed bantams. Never thought the boy would come from the bigger chickens.
