    I am thinking about getting 4 chicks in the spring from Meyer, probably 2 golden polish, 1 EE and maybe a GLW or a barnevelder, has anyone had terrible experiences with it? If you love your chicken(s) from Meyer I would love for you to post some pictures. Thank you. :)

    I ordered from them once so far but would definitely use again. I ordered 6 plus the extra "Meyer meal maker" chick. All arrived in perfect health and are still doing well three weeks later. The only breed I received that you're considering is the ee. I received both a male and female. I'd be happy to post pics - but I'm sure you're looking for full grown photos to see how they'll end up. Mine are currently losing their baby down and look pretty silly! By the way, I found Meyer's customer service by phone to be wonderful! Email...no response but they're extremely accommodating over the phone.

    I got a sliver laced wyandotte and barnevelder from them. The wyandotte is alive and well, a bit bossy but very healthy. The barnevelder arrived sickly and, although I tried to nurse her back to health, she didn't make it. That's her in my profile pic. They also didn't ship one of the chicks I ordered and they gave me a refund. I just ordered some meat birds from them and they seem healthy and happy.
