    Well I ordered them last week...they shipped on Wed. Got them This morning SAT and they were ALL very healthy and happy acting. Even more so now that they got food and water [​IMG] I'm VERY happy with them and will order from JMHatchery again next year [​IMG] We ordered 25 and we got 26 Possibly even 27 (they are SO hard to count)! LOL

    OH and I weighed them all and they are all weighing in at 1 ounce (being the smallest one) and 1.5 being the largest. I'm going to weigh them once a week to keep track.

    Wow, you got them 3 days later and they were all healthy? That's impressive!

    I just now ordered 150 from JM, for the July 8th hatch date. I'm going "totally Ranger" for the second half of the summer. [​IMG] But leaving behind the "tried and true" cornish x's is difficult, and I'm hoping I don't regret the move.

    I'm also upping my prices to $2.25/lb, if anyone is keeping track. My processor raised his prices, plus with these birds having a higher FCR than cornish, I'd still like to make at least a buck per chicken.
