    For anyone who's read my other thread...I was SO looking forward to my 2 Silver Polish pullets from MM...and they were both DOA. I'm hoping beyond hope that this one is a Polish, altho it's little crest isn't very big like the other two were...

    Yep! Definently! We got our chicks from McMurray on Monday, and lost 4 or our Silver Polish. One little guy made it and she looks just like yours!

    THIS WASN'T AN ISSUE WITH MM! Just wanted to be clear. They were lost in the mail...I had three GA post offices looking for them Monday morning and they couldn't find the shipment anywhere.

    Good Ole USPS killed my chickies...and MM is kind enough to replace them. We've never had any issue with our MM chick orders til now.

    [​IMG] I am VERY happy this chick is a Polish! It's doing great, too.
     
  9. Good to know they aren't to blame! Man, I feel like they are in trouble far too otfen, and I was eyeing the catolouge this morning... [​IMG]

    You're going to love that chick. Such character they have! Post pics when the little bird is grown! Love a good afro-chicken! [​IMG]

    We haven't had any issues with MM before this order. Was very sad to say the least.

    Hopefully their replacement order to us next week fares much better!
