    Has anyone ever ordered chicks from Strombergs Chicks? How were they? How was the shipping? Time frame? I was thinking of ordering from them. Thanks

    Stromberg's actually doesn't have their own chicks. Rather, they dropship from several other hatcheries, so depending on which hatchery they are dropshipping from for your order it could vary.

    You might want to go with a 'regular' hatchery and remove the middle man. McMurray, Ideal, Crackle, Meyer and the like might actually save you some money, with the benefit of improved selection of birds/breeds. I buy things from Stromberg's, but not chicks.

    Best to you and your birds,

    Thank you all for the answers. I am not quite ready to purchase yet. Just looking and getting ready I am glad I asked.
