    I just got a shipment of Buff Orpingtons in this morning from Meyer Hatchery. This was my second order from them and I am well pleased. My order was for 17 but they sent an extra with them so now I have 18 Beautiful baby chicks. Meyer Hatchery has always treated me well and customer service has always been to notch in my experiences. They even called me the day they shipped let me know they were on the way.

    I ordered from welp hatchery. Ordered a total of 25 and got 28. Prices were excellent and all 28 were happy and we had zero losses.

    I have always been impressed with the quality of buff orpingtons from mcmurray. they were true to type and massive, really beautiful.
