    Hi everyone, I don't expect much response to this as I know many of you live in the states,
    but I was wondering if anyone had ordered or heard about www.performancepoultry.com ?

    I am planning to order from them this spring. They are located in Prince Edward County in Ontario.

    I have ordered the last 2 years from them. First year never lost one. Last year lost a few but ordered earlier and was much colder and also had way more birds...... Going to order again. Later though this time. He doesn't start shipping until the beginning of May. I live in B.C. so they had to travel quite a distance too.

    Depends on the quality you are looking for. If you plan on more serious breeding down the line go with eric rivard at genetic preservation. As general hatcheries go performance is a good choice for healthy birds.

    Thanks for your input everyone! I haven't ordered from performance before, but I'll wait and see what type of quality they have before I consider Eric Rivard. I'm glad you mentioned him though kstaven, because he might be a place to try in the future.

    I read their faq and a lot of the information was wrong!

    "Male chickens live an average of 3-5 years"

    yeah, right.
