    Penguin came from either Cackle or Ideal. If you want quality, then a hatchery is NOT the way to go. Some have single combs like Penguin, a DQ.

    I'd stay away from McMurray... I've seen several posts saying that McMurray's SLWs are horrible...

    Paul has Great looking birds, but I put an order in for Silver Penciled Wyandottes over three months ago and have never gotten a response back from them, so I don't think that would be the way to go. I ordered from www.foleyswaterfowl.com and 9 days later received Big, Healthy Chicks so if want Good Healthy chicks fast I would buy from Foleys.

    Thanks everybody! I ended up ordering 15 Wyandottes from Meyer. My new babies will hatch on June 6th. I'll keep you posted.
