Does anyone have a show quality bird from MPC hatchery. I am looking to get some chicks but would like a decent representation of the breed. If not show quality then at least good quality to breed and sell chick's. Thanks 😊
P.S if you have pica please post them
 
I can't speak from experience from hatcheries as we don't have them here like other countries do. But even from an excellent breeder (where I have got my breeding stock from as hatching eggs) you will only get a few chicks from any hatch that are 'show' quality. To be sure all the chicks I've hatched are lovely but most will have one small cosmetic fault or another to keep them from being 'perfect'.
I imagine hatchery stock would have even less chance of very good breed examples.

Ok thanks 😊
 
Ok thanks are they even a mediocre representation of the breed at mpc
Mpc breeds some of their birds, the more expensive breeds are drop shipped from meyer. If it says that that breed has an identifying leg band, it's from Meyer . Most hatcheries will have quantity, not quality. McMurray has APA lines in some breeds.
