    I'm ordering 7-8 chicks that are 4 weeks old from Murray McMurray hatchery. I'll be getting 1 EE, 1 White crested polish, 1 Golden Laced Polish, 1 White Leghorn, 1 Buff Orpington, 1 Black Australorp, 1 Columbian Wyandotte, and possibly a light Brahma for my local 4H group. Has anybody had any experience with McMurray hatchery? Especially these breeds?

    MMH is a nice hatchery. Healthy birds and good customer service. The quality of their birds (in terms of appearance and adherence to the breed standards) is rather low, but if you only want the fowl for egg laying and pets that shouldn't be a problem.
