    I have had two separate orders from MPC, one year apart, and each order had a Buff Brahma bantam and of the three chicks, two had slipped tendons. One had one and the other had slipped in both legs. Only one chick was normal. Do you think this is a coincidence or maybe they have a genetic problem with their stock? Has any one else had this problem with this particular breed ordered from MPC?

    Quote:Have you contacted the hatchery? I would let them know this happened. I doubt they would provide you w/ much information (or a refund) but at least this gives them a heads up that something is going on they may need to address. I hope you find an answer.
