    3 years ago a group of me and other leaders(I am a junior leader) ordered 300 assorted chicks for 4Hers. I got some and ordered 15 Moderns for my self. This was our experience
    Moderns- By far best quality MGBs from a large hatchery, I was impressed.
    STANDARDS
    Cochins-These birds were small, not pleased. They had good color though.
    Polish- Full crests, nice birds. Lacing was poor though.
    Jersey Giants- These were super nice and large.
    Langshans- Right amount of feathers on there feet but they were not tall enough.
    Salmon Faverolles- I don't remember these very well, I think they were good.
    Araucanas were also ordered. These were ordered as Araucanas, not EEs or Ameraucanas. Some were rumpless and they had a Silver pattern, These were not show birds and I think they were crosses of EEs or something.
    Overall, the best chicken from a large hatchery but it all depends on breed
    Hope this helps
