    I want to order some standard faverolles, and am deciding between Cackle or Ideal. I've never odered from Cackle before, but I've heard great things about them. Ideal is my favorite hatchery, but I'm wondering if their faverolles are healthy and good quality. If you have Fav's from either of these places, please comment (or better yet, post pics!)! Thanks!
    Oh, and does anybody know if Cackle drop ships or actually has hatches their own birds? Does Ideal drop ship?

    Could you tell me what birds you've ordered from Ideal in the past? I have australorps, speckled sussex, buff orpingtons, dark egg layer assortment, gold laced wyandottes, and ameraucanas coming from there. If you've gotten any of these breeds from there would you mind telling me how they were?

    I've ordered their Gold Laced Wyandottes. They were okay. They never grew very big. But they were very pretty.

    Thank you, I guess we'll see how it goes. I am interested in responses to your original post because I do plan on getting more faverolles in the future.

    Ideal and MM has "sport" faverolles which they are darker salmon in color with creme beards. Not all of them are that way.

    If you want the "real" McCoys, some of us BYCers might have some available.

    Sorry I no longer raise them but hatch them out LOL!
