    Hi all! I ordered from Meyer hatchery this year in the first of March. The chicks arrived in May. Two chicks had twisted legs and one had a crossed beak. I paid over $100 for this order and I was given defects that should have been noticed during packing. I emailed them and they were very nice and gave me a refund. But should I order from them again? [​IMG] They do have alot of beautiful breeds, but do I want to risk getting more deformed birds?

    Meyer is a reputable hatchery that has been in business for many years. If their customer service handled it well and you got a refund I wouldn't hesitate to order again.

    Wow. I place an order every year and have never gotten a defective chicks from Meyer. I have from Ideal and Xtreme (quite a few!) but have always gotten great chicks from Meyer.
    I guess sometimes doo-doo happens.[​IMG]
