    I ordered 100 chicks of Meyers rainbow layer mix. They arrived with only one loss this time and one just after I got them in the brooder (it's always the pits to have them die after they arrive safe)

    Anyway, I was very pleased with Meyer. They send extras to cover the losses anyway but this time they packed them in 2 boxes so they wouldn't over heat.

    I ordered 100 last month too, and ended up losing 8. This time with the extra box and not getting stuck in Cincinnati for an extra day it was lots better.

    Nice mix too.
  2. I too like Meyer! It is only 45 minutes away from me! It does kinda get me in trouble from time to time. [​IMG] LOL I highly recommend them! [​IMG]
  3. I'm pretty certain that Meyer fulfilled our My Pet Chicken order. They sent us three beautiful birds, and I think they even "designed" the colors because the EE has beautiful brown barred coloring that perfectly coordinates with the the black Australorp and the blond BO.

    Call me crazy but I really believe they took the time to do that for us!

    I got my BO chicks from there in June and was very pleased too. They are only about 45 min from home and it was a beautiful drive through Amish country. The girls that were working there were very pleasant and helpful too.

    I think Meyer sent my MPC chicks also. I ordered one silver laced polish and two Easter Eggers. They were all different colors and I thought the same thing. It seemed as though they deliberately gave me a nice selection. They were super healthy on arrival and almost two weeks later they are growing up to be funny, friendly birds.

    I ordered 6 chicks from Meyer and the box came with a My Pet Chicken label.

    My chicks are very energetic, 3 Salmon Faverolles and 3 Buckeye. Unfortunately one of the Faverolles has a severely crossed beak. He's still an energetic little guy so far.

    I am completely happy with Meyer and would order from them again.

    Quote:Do you have pics of the silver laced? Curious what the quality is like.

    I bought gold lace, buff laced, and WC blues from Meyer. I was happy except for the really shaggy crests on the majority of the gold laced. The others have nice crests and coloring (well, if you ignore that 3 of the 5 WC blues ended up being WC blacks, but I'm not sure you can tell that when they hatch?)

    You can see photos of my girls on my blog
    They are still less than 2 weeks old, so the funky hairdo hasn't come in yet.

    In case my attempt at putting a link in didn't work, it's

    And I'm barely knitting these days because I'm spending all my time either playing with my chicks, or reading this forum.
