    What would you rate their quality? Are they better then most hatcheries or the same?

    I haven't dealt with them personally, but I've heard nothing but positive reviews. Sue

    I've gotten black / frizzles from them, don't know how they would rate quality wise, love the temperaments on them. Some pics of 6-7 month olds below, they were ordered as frizzled but some as usual are not, not sure if this would be the same general line as the not-frizzle ones would be. They also sent along some Auburns as fillers a couple of months ago.

    Color Sand Hill has, no idea where they got it. Took these two pics a couple of days ago, they were hatched late June I think so are around 4 months old, hopefully the ugly is just a stage. Some have yellowish legs, some have white, feathers are actually laced I guess you would call it with the dark red/ auburn and black. Temperament is nice, they are also quite friendly.

    Thank you for the pictures, auburn must be a color project for them. Did you get just auburn roosters or did you get some hens as well?
