    I am considering getting some chicks from Meyer Hatchery. I have never dealt with them.

    Has anyone gotten chicks from them or do you know anyone who did?

    How was it; recommend to buy from or stay away???????

    You can pm me if you'd rather not publish what you have to say about them.

    I am waning some Buff Brahmas from them and Blue Andulasian. Would get day old chicks/female/pullets. Planning on four of each breed.

    I ordered 25 CX from them last year 26 arrived in perfect health! I dealt with a girl named Jess and she was awesome!. I think you'll find a mixed batch of answers-you'll get great responses and some horror stories. Mine was great!

    Meyer has a very solid reputation. I think you will be fine with them as long as you realize that some things are out of their control. The postal system can be a little hard on chicks. Not dinging the USPS, it's the travelling. Good luck![​IMG]

    Very good hatchery:D I ordered 4 Buff Brahmas and 4 Buff Laced Polish from them. Unfortunately one of the Polish died but I contacted them and they gave me a credit for it. Very good Customer service.
