    Have you bought something from them? Is their quality good?
    The $15/chick seems a little high to me and their description of Ameraucanas tells me they are selling Easter Eggers, not Ameraucana breed. For an Easter Egger, $10/chick is pretty pricey.

    i have bought from then and their stock is excellent! But yes they are very pricey. Thay have champion quality light brahmas that are to die for. And pretty much all their stuff is SQ.

    Sounds great! Quality is something that is very hit and miss with hatchery birds and perhaps theirs are worth their prices. Do you know if they sex the chicks or if they are all straight run?

    Dang! Them are some pricey chicks! I'd hope every chick they sell would be show quality.

    I'd say! I thought that the straight run Blue Orps from Sandhill and Catalpa were expensive at $5-7/chick, but they 've got them both beat. Obviously, this hatchery can't guarantee show quality; no one can, no matter how fantabulous the parents are.

    Well, if she's producing these breeds to a good breed standard, then I certainly commend her for it. Glad you have a good source for your birds.
