    There is apparently no end to this chick addiction. First thing in the morning and last thing at night, I check all the hatcheries' websites to look for changes and additions while making notes as to what is where....I may need counseling and possibly medication [​IMG]

    But seriously, I ordered my Favs from MPC last year and I knew not to expect show-quality from a hatchery, but I ended up with one jaw-droppingly-beautiful Favs rooster and 2 gorgeous hens. The other rooster and hens are still pretty, but they are the average Salmon Favs.

    Are the eggs pictured below that deal an example of the color they lay? Or is that just the stock photo.

    Why am I even asking? I'm an Ideal fan! [​IMG]

    They claim that their birds are from the same lines that many other people name.

    I have heard a rumor that Meyer Hatchery ships for MPC. I received Meyer's catalog today and they have the SAME assortment listed in their catalog (although it isn't listed on their website yet). Although I find it odd that MPC sexes bantams and Meyer's does not.
