    It's such a generic name I can't get anything to pop up when I search :p

    I've been to the farm and it seemed great, and I came home with 13 chicks, but I have lost so many to disease (coccidiosis and mycoplasmosis) that I'm not sure if they're a good place or not! I know this really could be a fluke, and I take comfort in the fact that even though it took me over a week to isolate the sick chicks from the healthy ones, 4 of them never did catch it. So those 4 must have some natural resistance, and I'm going back next week to get more chicks in hopes I get more of those resistant ones :)

    But does anyone else have some experience with them? Am I a complete idiot to go back to the same place to get more chicks?

    I wouldn't use the word 'idiot'.......but it's definitely risky.
