My first experience with hens was with three Golden Buff. We drove to hatchery and picked them up. We were impressed with the hatchery and the people that waited on us. The store is really neat to visit as they have everything available for your care of and decorating fun. The hens were strong and healthy and I had no problem with them. Spring of 2019 I ordered 3 different breed hens. They came to our local post office and were also strong and healthy. I am very pleased and will always order from Meyer Hatchery!
