Since I have moved to the middle of nowhere, actually finding chickens to buy live anywhere close is impossible, except for the feed store chicks...which I will probably get a few of because my golden sex links I got last year are really good girls, healthy, good layers, and very friendly. This year I want some EEs, which means I will have to order them. I have ordered from Ideal before, but I was NOT impressed. I did not get the type of chicken I was expecting and they have not been the greatest layers...I only have 2 of those left. They also aren't the friendly lap chickens I was hoping for. So, does anyone have any experience dealing specifically with EEs from mail order? I would like some healthy chicks that will grow into hens that at least lay interesting colors and are pretty good layers, though I realize they will not produce as well as my production layers. Any suggestions?
