    define quality...Privett is good

    if you are looking for quality in regards to standard...none

    quality in regards to live animals and free of disease and such...most of them

    I ordered 50 chicks from a reseller two weeks ago, but the return address showed that Privett was the hatchery.

    The good news... they added two extra chicks to the order and everybody looked healthy on arrival. Bad news... I think the two extras are roos, two others died after a couple of days, and there was no indication of which breeds were shipped. I suppose that's what you get if you order "hatchery choice," but a list of what was in the box would have been nice.

    I've had great luck with chicks from Ideal, and they accept PayPal too. You can also check some of the hatcheries listed here: http://www.countrychickens.com/country_chickens_4_003.htm
