    I've posted this on this thread and a few others... and I am still at a loss.

    First let me say I got my chicks from MPC. They were 5 weeks when I took these pictures (which if someone wants to see them I'll post them but I don't want anyone to say.."Geesh not these pictures again!") They'll be 6 weeks Monday. I have very healthy chicks. I did not expect "show" quality chickens
    BUT
    I did expect to see my chicks growing up to the pictures I've seen.

    So far 2 out my 3 Polish's have lopsided feathered heads. Some say that can be normal and others say it's a hatchery chick and will never grow out.

    My Silkie doesn't look like so many silkies but she does have black skin, and 5 toes. Another Pet quality I'm guessing.

    I love all my babies.

    But I'm starting to feel insecure about what I got. Also if MPC was sending out "pet quality" and had so many things different don't you think they'd suffer which I don't think they have?

    Thanks for hearing me out! [​IMG]

    Quality can depend on the hatchery. I don't have experience with MPC at all, but many have used them.
    Sorry if you are disappointed, but if they are healthy that's what matters most.
    I got mine from Ideal and was pleased with the quality.
