Mt. Healthy bantams

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 


Anyone who's ordered from Mt. Healthy ever get any bantam chicks like these? I went on there website to look thru pics but the only think I could find bantam wise was an assortment. I'd really like to figure out their breed so I can decide whether to keep them or sell them! They have pink legs and I can't tell comb type yet bc they're super tiny!
Thanks in advance!

I've never order from them, but I've heard of very numerous amounts of salmonella breakouts at their facilities that spread the disease wherever the chicks go.

I appreciate the concern, but I am a little OCD about washing my hands. Not to mention the same can be said about other hatcheries people frequently buy from...

I wasn't saying I didn't believe you. There's a risk of salmonella in chickens in general. The key is to WASH YOUR HANDS. I understand that and I don't need a tutorial. I have the chicks already and there's no taking taking them back. I made this post hoping someone could help me identify the breed of this chick, not for a lecture about disease. Thanks for your help hmm.png

Sorry, I didn't know you had already ordered your chicks. I just skimmed through your post and read Mt. Healthy, so I immediately remembered about their disease outbreaks I have heard about. You are right, any hatchery could have salmonella, you just need to wash your hands. I'm sure your chicks are healthy and I'll try to look up your chick's breed.

After reading thru my last post, it sounds alot ruder than I meant it to read. Sorry about that. I picked these guys up from TSC, and didn't know where they'd ordered them from until after I brought them home. I called and asked which hatchery they came from in hopes I could browse their website and figure them out.
They could be Japanese! They look alot like those babies, but they don't have the short legs of other Japs I've owned in the past. That could be bc they're hatchery chicks though. Guess I'll have to wait and see. Thanks very much, I didn't even think about Japanese bantams!
