    Very Hardy

    Chickens arrived earlier than expected, which was great. Very hardy and prolific chickens! In hindsight maybe we should not have ordered so many. They all survived and are very healthy. 7 of the hens all have biddies on the ground. They have been awesome little chickens.

    Thanks a Million

    I want to thank you for packing my chick order. You did an outstanding job. The chickens came at 8:15 am Wednesday morning in good health. I also would like to thank Tiffany for calling me on my replacement of short legged chicks. Thank again for the wonderful service and i will recommend friends to your hatchery.
