    Ordered for the first time with them last week, my chicks we're due to be here tomorrow; instead, they showed up yesterday. All 26 of them! Everything was what I ordered (I think since I'm so green at all of this [​IMG] I let them put in a "rare" breed. Though, one of my partridge rocks has only one eye [​IMG] None were dead when they arrived nor died during the night! Their all thriving [​IMG] I would buy from them again.

    I had the same experience last week- mine were suppose to arrive on Monday but they came on Sunday instead. I actually got 27 (not sure why an extra sebright was added along with a "mystery chick"). One was more sleepy than the others on arrival and I hand fed her for a day, but she died during the night. I called the hatchery and they credited my account since it was prior to 48 hours. All 26 others are still doing great and have no signs of slowing down! Very active and extremely cute. I hope I won't need more chickens for a while but I would definitely order from them again.
