    My local feed store orders from them by the thousands, and I have bought their chicks. They were good, healthy chicks, and grown up, they looked like the breed they were supposed to be too.

    My feed store orders from them as well. I bought a few EE's and they're pretty little birds. I know the feed store orders from them every year so they must be happy with them!

    My local feed store also buys from them when they can get their chicks. Then when they run out they start with Ideal. One of the ladies on here told me she got really nice big eggs from her EE she got from them. Jean

    I have personally had their Australorps, EEs, Buff Orpington, Barred Rock and Light Brahma. All these breeds grew up and looked like the breed. I still have the Buff Orp. My feed store carries their Speckled Sussex, White Rocks and others as well.

    Well here they are (pics I took) & they were all young pullets; you don't have to guess what they are:
