    Meyer hatchery silkie bantams

    Got some silkie bantam babies in the mail on the 25th. They’re different from raising a barred rock mix, who’s much louder and active. These guys tend to sleep a lot and run away from sunlight. My barred rock would always sprint to it and flop over. These guys are pretty cute though, and they...

    What breed is this?

    Hello. My name is Valerie and my husband and I are new to raising chickens. We have 3 lavender Orpingtons and a mystery bird that we received as the meal maker add on from Meyer Hatchery. I absolutely adore her but can’t quite figure out what breed she is. Any help is much appreciated!

    Photos of Heritage Barred Rocks from Meyer Hatchery?

    Does anyone have Heritage Barred Rocks from Meyer Hatchery? I'm thinking of ordering from Meyer just so I can get a Heritage Barred Rock rooster. I'm wanting to show my chickens through my school's FFA and I think it might be worth the extra money to start off with a chicken that better fits the...

    Best chick hatchery with good looking birds that look like the breed

    Hi Guys! It’s been a while since I’ve ordered from a hatchery and seems to be the best way for me to get chicks. I’ve used 2 hatcheries in the past 1.) Meyer Hatchery 2 times 2.) Ideal Poultry 1 time The birds never really looked as good as in representing the breeds. Some with bad...

    Review of my experience with Meyer Hatchery

    Hey everyone, I'm not at all affiliated with Meyer Hatchery. We just ordered nine chicks from them in December 2019 and I thought people might find my experience with it useful. I had backyard chickens for years but never got chicks in the mail before. We specifically ordered a Blue Ameracauna...

    Meyer Hatchery rip off

    1st let me say this was my 2nd year getting chicks from Meyer. A total of 16 chicks. All strong and healthy. This year I decided since last year’s were so good that I would splurge and get that frost white legbar I had my eye on last year. Over $50 for that 1 chick. Everything I had read she...

    Best place to buy starter pullets online? Meyer Hatchery?

    As I stated in a previous post on gender questions, ( I've been having reeeeally bad luck trying to get female barred rocks. Many have suggested ordering starter pullets so their sex can be pretty much...

    Cackle Hatchery vs. Meyer Hatchery | Silkies

    Good Day, I am going to purchase 5 silkies in 2019. I am deciding between Meyer Hatchery and Cackle Hatchery. I was hoping you could tell me about your experience working with either or both of the said hatcheries. It would be especially helpful if you could show pictures of your silkies...

    What’s Your Rating of Meyer Hatchery?

    So we found Meyer hatchery, and were planning to order three D’Uccle bantams. We were blown away that the prices were so affordable and the availability of the chicks compared to the other hatchery we’ve ordered from in the past. All good things, but I’ve begun to worry if it was too good to...

    Experience with Meyer Hatchery?

    I received an order from Meyer this week and I'm extremely disappointed. I'm wondering if anyone has had similar experiences and if I should order from them again in the spring with my store credit or just ask for a refund... I ordered 16 chicks and received 15. I called and they said the Blue...
