    I loved them. I ordered 8 (a variety of breeds) and they all arrived healthy and happy 2 days after shipping day. Mine are 7 weeks old now, all are still doing great. [​IMG]

    They are a little hard to get ahold of at times, but once you do get them they are all super nice. Customer service is very good there. They have a 90% sexing gaurantee and do not use male packing peanuts.

    Love them too - We got exactly what we ordered (type AND sex) and all were very healthy.

    I received my order of 9 babies, 3 Black Australorps, 3 NH Reds & 3 Barred Rocks, on June 25 (shiipped on June 23). I had to wait about 6 weeks for one breed to become available. They arrived in perfect health and have been perfect little chicks ever since. Good luck!

    great. i ordered 8 australorps, which are all healthy and alive after 2.5 weeks. They showed up when expected,just hoping that the sexing was right at this point,but too early to tell.

    I like that you can get small orders. 8 was a bit much for my space,but i was counting on losing some,and that hasn't happened. I have the space, but that many chickens means my friends will be getting loads of eggs in 5 months

    I have read that in general they are really really good. But I have also read that if you do have a problem, their email responses are terrible. Just do a search for MPC on here and you will read the same.

    I haven't ordered from them, but I noted last week when I did a Google search, that they list "Marans" as Maran. That kind of mistake from a hatchery would make me think twice about ordering from them. But it's not necessarily a fatal flaw....

    My experience couldn't have been better. Five little peepers, arrived in two days, healthy and well, and each one a pullet.
    As for the 'Maran' thing.... methinks you're nitpicking. [​IMG]
    Perhaps a typo on MPC part.

    I would order again from them.

  9. i ordered some chicks last year and everyone arrived safe and sound. They even threw in an extra polish. i did end up with one silkie rooster (i ordered all girls), but the extra polish made up for that.

    i have found them to be very responsive and helpful, and appreciate that you can order less than 25 chicks. i would recommend them.
