    Anyone here ordered from Mt. Heathly Hatcheries?

    Im thinking of going through them for my next batch of Chickens and this years turkey order.

    If anyone has gone through them before, please give me some input, good, bad, ugly, whatever.

    Thanks.

    I got my chicks in June from Mt. Healthy. I got 2 EE's, 2 black australorps, and 1 lt. brahma. One EE lays a really pretty blue egg and one lays a really light brown/pink egg. The australorps lay me an egg every morning and the lt brahma lays just about an egg a day (maybe will take off the 7th or 8th day). They were very healthy and active when they arrived and have been great. All are very friendly. I received them June 23 and they started laying December 15!

    Glad to hear all the positive responses with them.

    Im making a large order, probably 25 RIR chicks and 50 BBW Turkey's, and for me thats alot of money, so I'm hoping that everything works out okay.
