I ordered the "special small order" of 6 chicks with a heating pad, because I really couldn't afford to have all the extra roosters most hatcheries want to put in to keep a small order warm. Then I started worrying because they were due to travel across the country during very cold weather--To my relief they all arrived healthy and happy. The packaging was very effective at keeping them safe and warm. Customer service was excellent--even when the post office temporarily lost the chicks (they were left sitting on the back dock) and I was panicking--the customer service at Meyer stayed very calm, concerned and reassuring. They did put in an extra chick, in case of loss, and it is one of the same breeds I'd ordered, so I am very happy. I will definitely order from them again.

I had a very nice experience with this company. We are really enjoying our first time raising chickens and learning as we go. We have so many eggs that we have to sell them!
Despite our large order, they added a few extra chicks which pretty well guaranteed our success. We only lost one chick the first day so we came out ahead. Any other loss was our fault.
My only complaint is that the availability for certain breed pullets ran down quickly so we ordered mixes. We also ordered 6 straight run and only got 2 cockrels. We wanted the hens for eggs so 2 males in 50 something birds was perfect!
We received a large variety of hens and are very happy with them! Shipping was super fast and the birds arrived here on a Monday morning. We'll be ordering again!
