    No, but I've contemplated ordering chicks from there before. Now I will definitely stay away.
    [​IMG] Yes, send the 4-legged voles up north for permanent hibernation!!

    I also need voles to help out around here. Only I don't want to raise them, feed them, or otherwise be responsible for them. Anybody know where I can get one of those? [​IMG]

    If anyone knows let me in on it too. Only I could use 3 or four. I don't mind feeding but I do need trainable.

    @GAFarmGirl87 I'm glad that you didn't get from there. I'm pretty happy with Meyer Hatchery. But then they are only 3 hours from me. But it still takes 16 to 24 hours for the chicksto get here! :)

    Haha, thanks for all the welcomes, and the compliment on my avi [​IMG]. Oh my goodness!! I had no idea Mnt. Healthy had that much of an issue! I almost got chicks there, and I'm glad I didn't! My feed store gets their chicks from there though... I find the name Ironic now though, Mnt Healthy is full of Sickness!

    Wow you guys are chatty today! Hope you all had a productive week filled with lots of coffee.

    I am off to my Mother's house for Mother's day weekend and taking my voles with me. DH is staying behind to keep an eye on the critters.

    Happy Mother's day to all, even those of you who are one mother's to chickies![​IMG]

    MORNING OCAP!
    yes, sitting here waiting for the "rest of the story"
    [​IMG] Have fun sending your brood off to freezer camp!

    SALTANDPEPPER2 - keep us posted on your broody hatch. What breed of eggs is she sitting on?

    I WANT TO RENT SOME OF THOSE VOLES UNTIL MY ARM HEALS! DO I HAVE TO PAY FOR SHIPPING????

    Now, since with one hand I can't type AND drink my coffee, BYE BYE [​IMG]

    Well, the broody is sitting on 4 Black Copper Marans eggs, one Black sex link, one EE egg, and one unknown, lol. I think it will be a buff/marans mix. All of them are from my own flock. I'm trying to decide whether I should take the chicks while they hatch, then return them when all the eggs are done, or to finish incubating them, then give the new chicks to her. Which should go smoother?
