    This is my first time ordering chicks online, so I figured I'd write a review about my experience
    Feb. 2ed- Ordered 25 Cornish X, promptly got an email confirmation and receipt.
    Feb. 3rd- Got an email telling me the day my chicks would be shipped and when they should arrive at the post office.
    Feb. 8th- Chicks arrived the date I was told they would. Packaging was in prime condition. All chicks arrived alive with no damage and an extra chick was thrown in too! All chicks started eating and drinking very well once placed in brooder.

    I am very happy with my order from Strombergs! Chicks were a reasonable price (especially compared to my local chick prices) and shipping was free!
    I have heard a few complaints about the breed quality of their other birds, but since I ordered meat birds I can't really say anything about that, but hopefully in the future I'll get some other breeds from them as well.
    As they grow I'll add comments on how they're developing and eventually on how their meat turns out

    I did have one chick die yesterday. It seemed to have some neurological damage and was stumbling around from day 1. Not sure what caused it but I wouldn't pin it on Strombergs themselves

    Chicks are two weeks old today, and growing well! The only thing I've noticed is there is a distinct size difference in the smaller and larger chicks. I chalk it up to the fact they're slow growers and assume they'll still finish at similar weights, but we'll see
