I'm going to order baby chicks for the first time and i don't know which hatchery to use. i would prefer one that has fare pricing and that will also vaccinate the hens. if anyone recommends me a good hatchery, that's great. thanks for all your help.
I ordered from murry mcmurry hatchery and was very pleased. they vaccinated all my chicks. and marked the roosters. they also threw in a free rare exotic chick which they also vaccinated for free. when i recieved they them they were all in great health. they are six weeks old now and i havent lost any they bigger and stronger everyday.
I have my first chicks that are now 8 days old, got them from My Pet Chicken who I believe gets them from Meyer. They are fat sassy and very entertaining..no pasty butts, very friendly.
I ordered 10, service was great, they shipped on a monday pm got them tues am. One did pass away pretty soon after recieving them, I could tell she was ill:( But the rest of them are healthy so far.
I liked MPC, (Meyer) because I didn't have to order the minimum of 25 that most hatcheries require, they vac'd them as well. Yes, the shipping was a little pricey (36.00) but it was worth it to get what I wanted when I wanted them.
