    I am ordering a total of 15 chicks from Mcmurray, 4 barred rocks, 5 buff Orps, 2 RIRs, 1 columbian wyandotte, an EE, 1 black Australorp, and 1 buff Rock. Anyone purchased these birds or any birds and have pictures??

    Wow such beautiful birds! Have you ever had any chicks arrive dead?

    Except for one shipment the PO lost, I have had pretty good luck with McM, maybe one doa in a shipment, shipments usually 50-100 chicks. I do think that most of the time the reason chicks are doa (or you lose them in the next couple of days) has more to do with the PO handling / the travel route than a problem with the chicks themselves. McM has also always sent extras in ours, not sure what they do with orders of 15 though.
