Customer Product Reviews
We ordered three of these birds along with a dozen other assorted breeds and they immediately made themselves known as the "adventurous" members of the flock. Always curious, inquisitive and very friendly. As adults, these traits continued to make themselves clear. These three chickens would come when called and were generally thrilled to be picked up and carried around.
We ordered an assorted rare breed mix 2 years ago and got three Black Minorca Hens in the mix. We call them the "Tres Amigas". Outside of being beautiful and healthy as are all your chicks, they are the sweetest most adventurous hens and great fun. When I come out to give the flock their afternoon lettuce scraps or bread heels, the minute I sit in the chair out in the chicken yard my Minorca girls jump into my lap and my arms and take a nap on me in the sun. They lay nice eggs too! It's amazing getting to know your chickens and their personalities!
Three years ago, I ordered a Black Minorca Cockerel, and he has won Champion Mediterranean Rooster twice. He is beautiful and has fertilized eggs which hatched into beautiful chicks. I recommend these birds!!!
These are some really beautiful birds! Not only attractive but lots of large white eggs. I have been ordering chicks from you guys for over 15 yrs and can say I am one SATISFIED customer. Trust me, McMurray is #1 in customer service and satisfaction!!! Jason Haynes -Oxford, AL
