    They were good but I would not order the Favorelles and Polish again.....I think it is due to too much inbreeding going on because I was getting cross beaks, weird colors and crooked toes and too many of the chicks were weak and its a battle trying to keep them alive for the three months I had them. So my friend and I wont be ordering those certain breeds anymore.

    Other than that, the other "common", not so rare breeds are excellent and their vigor was strong and they came out to be beautiful birds.

    Service is nice but you will have to be patient with their orders because they are not the type that would fill your order as you call in thing like other hatcheries do. If there are certain breeds out there, I would find some private breeders and go from there.
