I ordered 25 barred rocks, 25 black giants and 25 buff orphingtons all pullets. These are all very pretty wonderful birds they just started laying and I couldn't be happier with them. You can tell by the size of the birds and the coloring that they are from good breeding stock. I was very impressed by the way they package the birds in the cold weather did not lose any in shipping. I have had nothing but a positive experience with Mt Healthy hatcheries and will be placing future orders with them.

We ordered 100 Golden Comet pullets and 100 Brown Leghorns and received them May 2016. We ordered them over the phone the sales lady was helpful and ordering was fast.We got a real good deal on them. They came in one day after the shipping date and very active with a extra in each box. We had 1 brown leghorn that died but we had the extra. They're 8 months old and been laying for about 2/3 months now. Our customers love the eggs They are much bigger than our barred rocks (from another place). We're definitely going to order again

This year, I ordered fifteen barred rocks from Mt. Healthy. Again, I received them the day after they hatched and in really excellent condition.
I can\'t say enough about the ease of ordering with Mt. Healthy, their great communication, and the wonderful quality of their chicks!
This is the only poultry hatchery I intend to ever order from in the future - they\'re terrific!

I love the Barred Rocks I got last year, so I just ordered fifteen more straight run chicks. These, too, are healthy chicks that have really taken off and are thriving.
This is a great company that sells carefully shipped, hearty poultry and provides excellent customer communication.

I just received another wonderful order from Mt. Healthy Hatcheries! They always take such good care when sending chicks, and the chicks always arrive in great shape and thrive. I have always been more than happy with every order, and recommend Mt. Healthy without reservation!

I am an experienced chicken owner on a small farm and I sell a lot of eggs direct to customers. Mt. Healthy is my preferred hatchery for replacement chicks.

An update on my Hubbard golden comets - They have matured into quite attractive birds. They started to lay consistently at 16 weeks. The eggs are on the small size, but are getting larger as the birds mature. I would order these birds from this hatchery again!

I love these birds. They lay jumbo eggs almost every day, even through the winter with no extra heat or lighting. They are also extremely friendly. Almost too friendly! I have to sneak around the yard if I don't want them following me around. They are easy to pick up and handle as adults.

I ordered 25 buff orpingtons and received them on July 18 2013. I picked them up from the post office and opened the box up there and found 27 live healthy chicks. They added two extra chicks in, incase one had died during shipping. It is now July 21 2013 and all the chicks are doing great and even have wing feathers coming in. I will order from Mt. Healthy for now on. The people that I have spoke with are friendly, informative and have beautiful healthy chicks.

Excellent! Beautiful healthy chicks, shipped quickly and well-packaged. Communication was superb and they sent exactly what I ordered, with an additional bonus. I would definitely recommend Mt Healthy Hatchery, and will be back for more in the future.

Recieved 100 Cornish, 100 Assorted Pullets and 100 RIR roosters Thursday of last week. All were alive at arrival and I have lost one cornish and one rooster to date. I have always been pleased with my purchases from Mt Healthy Hatchery. I switched to Mt Healthy after Cackle Hatchery ripped me off on $500 of sick birds.

In the spring of 2012 I bought various breeds of baby chicks at Tractor Supply, which gets them from Mt. Healthy. All of the chicks done great and grew up to be amazing birds. The Australorp roosters were huge, every chicken was healthy and hardy, one Orpington hen layed 6 eggs a week during fall with no artificial light, and a RIR hen (no joke) lays 29 eggs a month right now in December with no artificial light.

I have purchased from Mt. Healthy's several times in the past few years, as well as from local shops and McMurray's, and Mt. Healthy is always my favorite. I have always recieved active, healthy birds. I always lose a very predictable one within twenty four hours, and generally one more 1-2 weeks in. The rest thrive. They have all grown large and vibrant, and many were easily show quality. And I have always recieved at least one extra chick, which makes up for the one I always lose early.

I have been to this hatchery, and they are first class. I have bought them at a local feed store, through the mail and picked them up at the hatchery. I've had the nicest Buff Orbingtons, and big large breed layers. And Millie the Missile Layer -green double yokers! Repeat buyer

We ordered 15 Speckled Sussex pullets from Mt. Healthy in June '09. The order shipped without a glitch but a couple of the chicks were DOA because the post office put the box on its side and the poor chicks at the wrong end of the box got smothered :(, but all the others arrived in great shape with no additional fatalities, shipping stress or problems of any kind, and we were happy that we did not get a single cockerel in the bunch. The hens are sweet, friendly birds that are of good quality and look the way the breed is supposed to look; we are very happy with them. When the time comes to add to our flock, I'll definitely order from Mt. Healthy again.

We ordered 25 Ameracauna pullets. 25 arrived within 12 hours of their estimated arrival time. 24 were healthy and one was listless and died within an hour of arrival. I called and they have given me credit on a future order. They were kind and apologetic. The chicks have thrived and are happy little peepers. I will order from this company again next spring.

I ordered several Cornish Rock broiler chicks as well as a variety of pullets for laying hens and some roosters. Unfortunately, when the shipment arrived most of the chicks were dead. I called the company and the owner called me back to get more details, and to explain that they'd been having problems with USPS personnel packing the chick boxes incorrectly in their trucks, and overheating them. He said he would re-ship the entire order as soon as the chicks were available, even though some of the chicks did survive the first shipment. I have received the replacement broilers, all alive and healthy and am looking forward to the remainder of the replacements. I don't blame the hatchery for the problem, but they were prompt in responding to the issue, even though it wasn't their fault. I would be happy to do business with them again.
