    I recently ordered 10 Wyandotte chicks from bergs hatchery through my feed store, they won't be available to be shipped for two months given the fact that they won't be hatching until then, but I was wondering what the survival rate usually is for Berg's?

    Where in Ontario are? I am pretty sure bergs is russel Manitoba. So it may be a long trip for them, and lots of time to get pretty cold. The hatchery usually has good healthy chicks, I'd be more concerned about the shipping. Depending on where you are from I would think there is a closer hatchery, not sure though. Oh just noticed two months, it will be warm by them and shouldn't be an much of an issue.
