    I've been on a long hunt.. From calling alot of people, going to livestock auctions, and posting ads everywhere online to buy a certain adult rooster but none are selling...

    I ran into Strombergs site and they sell adult birds and have a large selection for sale and they have the rooster I want..
    I know the shipping is abit high for adult birds but it's much more convenient for me...

    Has anyone here ever order adult birds from Strombergs? Or did any kind of business with them?

    Has anyone ordered Blue Wyandottes from them?
    I haven't been able to find to much out about them or their birds.
    Anyone had bad or good experience when ordering from Strombergs?

    I ordered 12 light Brahma's and 13 RIR's from them about a month ago. They were day old chicks though, not adult birds. So far so good. I had to cull one of them right away due to sprawl leg, which is an injury, not a disease. They're all feathered out already and thriving.

    I ordered a pair of adult Blue Cochin Bantams from Strombergs. Shortly after I received them I entered the pullet in the Eastern New York State Poultry Association show in Cobleskill, NY. She was the Champion Bantam of the show. That was in 1962.
