I so far have had a good experience with MPC. I live in the Seattle WA area and it took two days for my chicks to arrive. They hatched on Monday and I went to pick them up Wednesday morning. The post office was very friendly and even let me come in before they opened to get my babies. They seem like they have the system down! But back to MPC...I ordered from them because they are the only place that offers sexed bantams (that I could find), which I find odd since they drop ship as everyone says from Meyer. Meyer only offers sexed standards...My chicks are still chicks so the jury is still out on if the sexing was correct. I do know that I got all the breeds that I requested. They all showed up bright eyed and peeping except one. She was much more sleepy and not nearly as active but alive. I had to give her some extra special attention and she perked up by the evening. I know there are complaints about the shipping cost and it does make sense in some circumstances to order directly from Meyer. However, the other thing I liked a lot about MPC was their website. It was easy to maneuver, had a really nice online catalog of chicks, and lots of good information. Also, I did get 4 standards and 2 bantams. The 4 standards were mareks vaccinated.
