    I am wanting to purchase some meat birds and have been looking around. Mt. Healthy (http://www.mthealthy.com/home) has good prices. I did a search here and did not find anything written on people's experiences with them, so I thought I'd ask...

    Thanks!

    I ordered 80 chicks from them this spring and had only one loss and that was in the first three days. It was a chick that was smaller than the others and just seemed like a failure to thrive death. Never really saw it drink or eat.

    All 79 others are doing just great now at five weeks. Good service, ordered online. Well packed chicks and got the free 25 when you order 50. The freebies were all New Hampshires and not all of them were roos! Very pleased. I will use them again.

    I bought my Americanas at a local farm store and they ordered all their stock from Mt. Healthy. Out of 2000 chicks they ordered, only 1 arrived dead.

    My friend bought 14 last year from this farm store and all are happy and healthy. She lost one bird to a dog attack. Her other birds are really good layers, very consistant and hardy.

    I bought 6 birds this year and they were hardy chicks and are very healthy young birds right now. Too young to lay yet.

    Hope that helps!
