Just wanted to say that I hatched a ton of eggs from Pappas Poultry last year and fertility was great! I would definitely recommend him to everyone.
Unfortunately a skunk got in and ate 19 out of 24 chicks over a two day period! But the birds that remain are lovely. I will continue to buy from him.
Oh! I'm so sorry to hear about the skunk and the loss of the little ones :(
This was my first attempt at hatching (so difficult to find English Orps near me so I thought I would try it myself). Papa's Poultry was recommended by a friend of mine and I've been nothing but pleased with them. Their communication is fantastic.
I'll update with pictures as they grow!
