Do we have a hatchery consumer report or can one be set up?

    I think it would be benificial for people if this site had a hatchery experience rating system. Not like a thread, but a place where hatcheries can be listed and people can rate them based on experience.

    Just a thought

    The problem with that is creating an agenda that's fair to the commercial hatcherys that already have a great support group from their happy and satisfied customers.

    Problems like dead chicks upon arrival is the post offices problems as well as the customer for orderering so early in spring ( cold weather ), when those problems could be avoided in the first place, with some good common sense.

    I think all the large successful hatcheries are just that, because of the great job they are all doing, it's their passion, and don't need a bashing, in my opinion.

    Keeping this subject, nothing but positive, is the only way this thread could work?

    I'm not sure that's possible?
