Customer Product Reviews
Last spring I ordered five different heavy brown egg laying breeds. As a last minute thought I added three White Giants. Though all the hens are sweet, these are exceptionally so. They were the last to lose their "peep" and even a year later they mostly coo rather than cluck. They are curious, friendly and calm. Even though they are listed as "not at all likely" to set, I have one that has been broody for about six weeks. I have another shipment of chicks coming in a few weeks and I'm going to have her sit with them. I can't recommend this breed enough. Order some and you won't be sorry!
We bought 100 day old White Jersey Giant chicks 7 months ago. We still have 95. They are so huge compared to our adult Rhode Island Reds. Yesterday we found 2 large pullet eggs in the first pen, we measured them up to a white store bought large egg and they are the same size. Then we found another one this evening at 4:00 p.m. when feeding them, another was trying to lay one too. We weren't expecting any eggs for awhile yet from what we have read, so we were pretty excited about it. And the chickens are so beautiful. Thank you very much for the good service and healthy chickens.
I ordered 12 chicks and in just 8 weeks they are huge. I can't believe how massive these guys are. I am extremely pleased with the health and breeding of these chicks. They have the sweetest disposition. It is great to call out to them and have them all run to me. A few of them have already started crowing. The comments say they mature slower, but these guys don't seem to fit that mold. They are amazing. Thank you.
I have ordered chicks from other hatcheries for myself and also dealt with other hatcheries in working for a feed store, and you have surprised me with your speed and competence. I received a confirmation email when my payment was received, emails saying when my chicks had shipped, and even a text message when they shipped! I cannot believe how fast I got my chicks, less than 6 hours after the text message, my post office was calling me to come pick up my chicks! It was amazing. I have to say I was not even prepared for them yet, using my past experience I had believed I had much more time! In my mad dash to the feed store with the chicks sitting in my truck, I let everyone at the store that I talked to know where I got these chicks from and how incredibly fast I received them. I also got two extra Giants, a white and a black, in addition to my free exotic chick. One little Fayoumi hadn't made it when I opened the box, and a Red Leghorn didn't make it through the night, but other than that these guys are energetic and doing wonderfully. Thank you for your speed, accuracy, and customer service. I will definately be recommending Murray McMurray from now on.
McMurray, I purchased 15 White, and 15 Black Giants. They are now 5 weeks old and cute! Thank you so much for these amazing little guys! They will definitely be happy roaming around our farmstead for the rest of their lives!
