    If so, how was the quality of their birds at maturity? Shipping & handling? Overall experience? I'm considering buying a small number of birds from them this spring (splitting an order with my MIL)...

    There's a search you can do here, Search by the company's name, lots of ppl have posted their dealings with them (hope that doesn't sound cranky of me!!). I have read a bunch of experiences with the company. Overall, from what I have read they are a good company to order from.

    Quote:I'm not sure if it is--but I've heard that most of the larger hatcheries do get their chicks from the same sources. I'm just really hoping for something with better quality than McMurray or Ideal...

    Your going to get the same quality from all hatcheries.

    If you want good quality find a breeder of the chickens your looking for.

    I am ordering BUFF silkie chicks from ideal I know they wont be the best quality because of how much black they will have in their feathering but I am not going to be showing I just want nice looking silkies.

    Quote:Yeah...I know....[​IMG] The problem is that when I hatch them out myself, I get 60-75% roos! [​IMG] So I'd like sexed chicks....and I hate to eat the extra roos...especially cochins & sumatras. [​IMG]
