I haven't ever ordered from anywhere where they sent the same day. they are all running around the box eating, drinking, and running and flapping their wings! very healthy chicks!!! i will post pics later when i have time [​IMG]

    All chicks are shipped the day they are hatched at Townline Hatchery. Many are delivered on the day hatched. I delivered 10,000 today that were hatched today.

    I ordered 30 chicks from Mt. Healthy. They were shipped yesterday, here by 7:00 a.m. this morning and all 31 were healthy, happy and warm in the box when I opened them. They are beautiful!

    MT Healthy rocks when it comes to quality chickens. I have 13 roaming my place and a broody sitting on eggs. All Mt Healthy chicks all grown up and 3 years old now.
