Here they are snoozing away. I just love them so much already. Praying hard they all make it! Thanks for your kind words and advice everyone!
Overall I'm happy with MPC. The chicks were well packaged with two heat packs under the straw.. It was quite cold weather for April and I thought they did a great job keeping the chicks as cozy as possible! I ordered two blue silkies and 4 assorted silkies and I got just that! I'm thrilled that I ended up with a buff as well because they were sold out of buffs, but still had the assorted option available and I got lucky! They don't have any birth defects that I can see and other than being pretty weak from the long travel time
(not MPC's fault) they seem healthy and bright!
It was a stressful experience with the post office and stressful trying to help the chicks as they were all weak when they arrived with two being very close to death. Crossing my fingers they all pull through.
All in all I'm not positive I'd order from a hatchery again just because I get high anxiety waiting for them to come and trying to save them once they're here, but if I did order again I'd definitely use MPC again!!
There's my review so far! Once they get older I'll post again so you all can see what they look like and I can see how well they were sexed! Hopefully all girlies
