    Love them!!

    I’ve ordered from you guys twice now and I have not lost one chick. In the two orders you sent extra girls for warmth I think 7 all together bonus! Beautiful birds my barnevelders just started laying large dark speckled eggs. They have great personalities I highly recommend this breed.

    Beautiful Birds

    My 4 Barnevelders are 3 weeks old. They’ve arrived in 24 hours to Atlanta, in great health. They seem to grow by the second, but we’ve had no problems since their arrival. They are beutiful, full of personality, friendly and well behaved. Im very happy. Thank you. I will try to post a follow ip when they are older.

    Beautiful Birds

    I purchased my chicks in Sept of 2016. Everyone of them were healthy and lived. I purchased a combination of Sussex and Wyandotte’s. They were all hand raised and are very friendly and love to “talk” to you. We had no issues with health or poop and they have grown into beautiful, large birds, and produce plenty of eggs. We will definitely buy from you again when we are ready to expand our flock.

    Chicken order

    I just wanted to send you some feedback on an order you sent me. They arrived all healthy and are doing great!!! My wife and I wanted to thank you for the way you handled the order and the quality of the chicks you sent us.

    Thank You

    I’m just wanting to express my thanks to you for the five different breeds of chicks that I got from your hatchery Feb 12th. They are doing quite well, one or two of the chicks has a soft poop but still seem to be full of energy. Being I never experienced chicks before, I was really surprised at how fast they grow. On the fifth day I had to extend my wall of the brooding area because they would jump and or fly over my twelve inch high pen. I did lose one of the barred rocks around the third or fourth day. I actually expected to lose two or three but I am blessed to have lost only one. Thanks for good service, information and kindly taking the time to answer my many questions.
