Not sure what everyone else's experiences are like with these two wholesalers/breeders but I have nothing but fantastic things to say about Rob over at Schusters farm in Lakewood and Bruce at Jersey chickens in Jackson. Both have an amazing knowledge of chickens in general and keep their facilities pretty clean for the work they do and Ive been to some shot-out places trying to sell in-bred chicks before. I keep finding myself going back to Schuster's and Jersey Chickens time and time again. I know there is a bunch of negative publicity around about Schuster's but I dont see where it all comes from. Most of the negativity I hear is from other chicken breeder's who try to chase me away from going back to him. The quality and diversity in these guy's breeds are almost unparalleled in and around the Ocean County area. All my birds are extremely healthy and appear to be pure to their breed standard. Schuster's also offers a Roo return policy and I've returned a few to him only to go back months later and see the same birds ALIVE and healthy. Check them out if your in need of good chicks. Hard to beat their hospitality. I never thought in a million years that i'd get so much enjoyment out of talking to two dudes about chickens and goats for hours on end.
