    Can you share please I was looking at My Pet Chicken and I like their assortments but was wondering if anyone had any personal experiences to share. Thanks!

    I am looking for your experiences with hatching eggs. Putting some of my own mixed fertile ones in the incubator and wanted to supplement with a dozen or so from a hatchery but don't know if that is the best way to go.

    I use Murray McMurray hatchery and it was the most pleasant experience I have every had with a hatchery. They took care of me and the chicks so well. All their chicks were healthy and lively, just what you would want -- cheeping up a storm. I haven't lost a single one and man, they are a wild bunch. Everything I could ever want. I just love them to death. I have never had anything to do with my pet chicken however so I can't say but I would point you to Murray. I am getting all my new chicks this year from them.

    Thanks for the info about the hatchery Chicks! I am curious about the hatchery eggs though. I want to know how people's hatches went. I am glad you had good luck with MM this year. Others haven't been so fortunate.

    Wantedman thank you to you too. Sorry they didn't deliver what you expected

    Oh! I misunderstood you and sorry I couldn't of been more helpful. I have never hatched eggs before! I don't even own an incubator, lol. Good luck though!
