    Has anyone bought from this website before? I'm interested in the quality of the Barnevelders, Delawares, and the Iowa Blues, in particular. Thanks in advance!

    Not speaking from experience from them, but the fact that they call their birds "New Hampshire Reds," then consider them "classic" instead of rare, and have a LOT of other hatchery type birds, plus only Cuckoo colored Marans and I don't see any "blue egg layers" on their list. . . I'd say any of their birds are quite likely the same hatchery/poor quality as any other normal hatchery would offer.

    Sad, because their domain name "darkeggs.com" is very misleading.
