We got two shipments of great birds from Purely Poultry last year. All were live and healthy. Such fun watching them grow up and begin to lay. We have even had one of the Buff Orpingtons hatch eggs this year. Plan to order from them again next year, though we will probably buy some birds locally too. I find the biddies at the farm store hard to resist.

I had a great experience with Welp Hatchery last year. Their customer service and quality of chicks was excellent. I will order with them again in the future.
