    Can't help with pictures, but I had gotten 12 each White Leghorns and RIR from them last August 5th and they are now just starting to lay. I am very pleased with the RIR. The Leghorns where a bit smaller than I expected but that may be the breed. I had lost one on day 2 and one just 2 weeks ago. All of the RIR made it fine.But all in all I am very happy with Meyer service. I will order from them this summer, But I will be getting some EE's.

    I don't have any of those breeds but I do have pictures of EE's , Faverolles and Marans from Meyer they are wonderful birds! If you want any pictures I will post them but not unless you want to see them. just remembered you PMed me I will post my pictures then.
    Here are the cuckoo marans girls
    These are the eggs from Faverolles (pink) EEs (blue) and Marans (brick red and speckled)
    Here are the Salmon Faverolles lost one of them to a dog attack and I want at least a few more hens! they are so calm and nice!

    Hope this helps you make your decision I may order from them again not sure though might just try and hatch a few Salmon Faverolles.
