    I've been ordering from Meyer for a few years and never had a problem. Chicks always arrive healthy. I wouldn't say they are show quality but for production they do well.

    Most of my girls are from them - I agree with the not show quality statement, but they have all been healthy. I can take some pics fo them tomorrow and post if you would like.

    Ok, here are some from last year when they were pullets. I'll try to get some current ones today. It's really windy here & they are laying low, but treats always bring them out.

    This is the only chick I had a problem with - she was supposed to be a Cuckoo Maran - but the legs are yellow and she has golden feathers on the neck. I actually got 2 of them (gave the other to a friend) and the other one was colored correctly. This one does lay a darkish egg and is very sweet so I think she does have some Maran in her, but obviously something else as well.

    Of the 15 chicks I got, all were sexed correctly, the order was received on time and all were healthy from day one.

    I really like Meyer. I ordered our 25 pullet chicks from them and only got one roo. Pretty good! 24 of them arrived in perfect health, one was a tad sickly, but it cleared up in two days. Mine free-range and turned into 24 lovely hens and 1 handsome roo.
