I ordered from them last year they were great, very friendly.  The chicks I got were healthy, and continue to be to this day.  They were exactly what I ordered and a great variety.  No beak or leg issues at all, I would order from them again w/o hesitation.

I've gotten chicks from them for the last two years--they are really good people to work with and haven't lost a chick yet.  Like their variety and the numerous chicks you can order as pullets--great for those of us who prefer not to  have roosters and keep the neighborhood quiet:)  I have not had them shipped, more fun to do a roadtrip since they are just over an hour away.  Good luck.
PS: I also really liked the catalog they had mailed out--love the photos and the descriptions for everything from egg productions, mature weight, purpose (egg/meat/dual) and the temperament...this year I tried twice but seems like they've gone to a cyber-mag....bummer as I liked it for a reference guide/wishbook...

I ordered from Meyer recently.  Everything went exactly as they said it would (shipping dates), and the chicks arrived in excellent condition.  I'll order from them again.

I just got an order of 33 chicks from Meyer last week.  I can't say enough good about the whole process.  They were cheaper, had a better selection this late in the year, and they send an e-mail when the chicks ship, so you know for sure that they are on the way.  I did have one dead in the box, but they gave me a credit.  They were in a mail truck for two days in a heatwave, so I was glad that there weren't more dead in the box.  They are all healthy and growing like weeds.

Here are some pictures:

I think the Good Lord gave chickens wings because He knew what their choice would always be between "fight or flight."

Just got my first shipment of 4 chicks from Meyers this past Monday.   All 4 were doing just fine, even all the way to California. I love that they send you an email to track your shipment.  I'm very pleased!
