    Absolutely reliable from my experience. I have ordered from them a couple of times and have had great service and success.

    McMurray is one of the oldest and best known hatcheries around. They're completely reliable.

    I ordered from them once, years ago. Eveything went fine.

    I will never order from there again. I recieved a chick missing it's eyes! and multiple dead. Then i email them repeatedly and they do nothing. Wont even replace them.

    I live in Wisconsin and last summer I ordered 25 chicks at the end of July. I'm happy with them and will be driving to Iowa, March 1st to pick up 30 more. i'm driving because I dont think they will live if I have them shipped. We are having a VERY cold winter.

    goog luck with your order.
