Last night I put in my order with Meyer Hatchery for three chicks. I want to thank everyone here at backyardchickens.com for helping me narrow the search for a hatchery. I previously had selected one in northern Michigan, but it didn't feel right. Then here I read about the great customer service and quality chicks from Meyer, and decided to take the plunge. I think my heart is still racing! I chose a Black Copper Marans, a Dominique and a Olive Egger. I'll be picking them up March 17. I write about it in more detail here: http://chickenscratchfever.wordpress.com/2014/01/22/we-ordered-chicks/ I'm a first-time chickeneer. It feels great to know this amazing chicken community exists to help a newbie like me. Thank you!! Peep-peep!
