I would use Murray McMurray before I would ever order ANYTHING from these folks again. NO customer service and I ordered 14 chickens all of which died within a few days and they were at a professional hatchery and brooder. The only chicken to live was the free one that was not inoculated. HUGE disappointment as I have been raising chickens now close to 55 years. Me thinks they just do not care and any sucker that will order chickens here may or may not get live chicks and they may or may not get what they ordered. What a bad taste I have in my mouth from these folks. I do not run my business like this thank goodness.

The birds came all alive. One died next day which is not too bad.
But, there are at least 2 more roosters than i ordered.
Black Copper Marans look like Australops. And, they charge $13 per one day old chick! One of the cooper marans turned out to be a rooster.

I had questions about breeds and starting out a small flock and the customer care was excellent. They were patient, answered all my questions clearly and in an encouraging way.
They have a beautiful selection of breeds and other products. Their clear policies give assurance that your purchase is protected. Looking forward to using this company in the future.

I wanted to report my experience with Meyer Hatchery 2/2018. I ordered 10 Marans and 5 Buff Orpingtons. The chicks were shipped and received within 24 hours picked up at USPS 10:00 a.m. The outside temps were mid 60's no winds to speak of. Opening the box at home I noticed the 2 white Maran females and the 2 Blue Copper Maran females and 2 Blue Copper Maran females were VERY TINY. The Orpingtons seemed small but I had never experienced that breed. Chicks were placed in NEW brooder with 97* readings on heat lamp, puppy pads on brooder floor, Medicated starter and supplements. I ordered GroGel, probiotics/electrolytes/vitamin packs and prepared Grogel immediately presenting to the chicks - prepared water with filtered spring water room temp with feeder filled with medicated crumble. One of the white Marans was listless and would not take Grogel, water or food. That bird died by end of day. The next morning the other white Marans died. I notified Meyer, they refunded the $23 for the birds. I told them my concerns with the frail/listless condition of the 4 Blue Copper Marans. Over the course of the first week, 2 white Marans, 4 Blue Copper Marans and 1 Golden Cucko Marans femal and all five Orpington were dead. Folks that 11 chicks out of 15 dead within the first week. After the first two losses, I mixed up an ACV in second water in the brooder. Those birds failed to thrive while one Black Copper Marans male, one Golden Cuckoo Marans and one meal maker (?) have survived. Clearly Meyer mailed chicks infected with coccidiosis. I cancelled other orders with two other sources because I didn't want to loose those chicks. I wrote to Meyer expressing all this. Their response is they don't refund chicks older than 48 hrs, directed me to a book that covered coccidiosis and basically told me to pound sand. This is clearly the wrong customer service response. I plan to challenge the $197 credit card charge and will post this on all forums. Order from Meyer at your own risk. They completely failed to step up to a problem that rests solely on their hands
