    Never heard of them, but they look like they have their stuff together.

    They look OK except some of the Pics don't match the descriptions: White crested duck. Also the white Leghorn seems to have an earlobe like a dutch.

    I believe they used to be called "Shank's Hatchery" they're located in Hubbard, Oregon.

    They are now under new management due to having some issues with their birds, I'm not sure what the issue was exactly but it was bad enough that my 4-H leader told me to never buy birds from there. Now that they are under new management whatever it was might be gone.

    I got most of my birds from them before they had any major issues, but none of the breeds I got were from their own stock. They were all pre-ordered from other hatcheries, so I can't make a judgement about them based on my birds. My RIRs and Sex-links are good from there. I had one die from being egg bound, but that normally happens in the production breeds. My Ameracauna or "easter egg" chicken doesn't lay green eggs though, they're brown. So that is kind of a bummer.

    I hope this helps.

    What breeds are you getting from them?
