I ordered 19 chicks in july 2013 the babies arrived early aug. black giants, delewares, dominiques, white rocks, barred rocks, new hampshires! first off I had 2 doa at pickup, 3 more died the next day, they did send replacement chicks! Now my babies are 5 months old and have had problems since I received them. The one giant that did survive is only about 4 lbs. and has trouble walking far distances. My male deleware has bad problems with his legs they are twisted in at the knee bad, and he is very scrawny, one of my female delewares is skin and bones and very pale and sleepy! And they are all ratty looking and thin! I know hatchery chickens are not the biggest prettiest birds but I had no idea they would be so UNHEALTHY! I have other chicks I got that are 8 months old from breeders and they are healthy beautiful shiny happy birds!! I have spoke to many breeders and they say they look like they r just not bred good!! I will NEVER get ANYTHING from them again! Please let me know if anyone else had this problem with Meyers, or was this my bad luck? I will post some picks of my poor babies when I have time!
