    I ordered two sets of eggs from them and didn't have a great hatch rate. They have a lot of nice breeds though.

    What are you looking for? There are some BYC sellers I've had great success with their eggs.

    So so hatching, not happy with the chicks that grew up that I had to get rid of all of them. Disappointed.

    I am sure they are good with common breeds but the rare breeds, its like gambling, you get what you pay for.

    I think silkies, cochins, or salmon faverolles. Im leaning mmostly to silkies though. I live in co springs if that makes a difference on sellers? Id be interested in chicks or started hens too.. Thanks so much!

    You can get Salmon Faverolles from the folks over at the Faverolles thread. There are wonderful people there! And better quality.
