  1. Richard Robins

    i got in my wheaten old English game and Easter eggers,,
    chicks very bright eyed,, very active and very hungry , I only opened a account here a few years back and it shows that I have only 2 orders…, but I’ve shopped here for better than 30 years, and as in every order, they are great ,however this was the only order that i ordered so late in the year, when i dumped my chicks , they automatedly went straight to dirking and eating, but this is my first order ever so late in the year and weather was 82-F and high humidity , I am very pleased with this hatchery

    O.E. Games

    I ordered several colors of O.E. Games in the Spring of 2019. The Wheatens,Blacks,Silver Duckwing are all very hardy birds. They seem to be the most alert and disease resistant of all of the birds that I own.

    I have a question about my red Wheaton standard I bought from here.

    I bought some of these chicks and I was wondering what breed they were not sure what bloodline… Sweater, lemon 84, roundhead, whitehackle, Radio, or Butcher
