what is the meaning of 1 straight run available?
That means there is only 1 bird available for that date. St run means not sexed.
What time will these be available? Can I purchase now or do I need to wait?
They will be hatching the end of January thru the first week in July. You can preorder them at any time.
Shipped with too large of other breedsWe ordered 1 roo and 3 hens, along with other standard breeds. Only 1 survived, won't know if it's the roo or a hen until later. I didn't want a refund, but had no choice as I was refused a replacement shipment, said they can't ship just 3 chicks. Didn't even give me the option to order more. Now they are sold out of hens for the year. Second time we have had problems due to the way their chicks are shipped. We will not be back to buy chicks again if I have a say in it, after we use our credit.
Small chicks shipped with largerMy latest order included two sexed trios (6 birds) of Sumatras and they are shipped with larger birds which is a death sentence for them. They are simply too small to be added to an order of anything but Bantams.
I did make request they be reclassified for shipping purposes or at least restricted from interacting with white egg and brown egg layers after spending 48 hours attempting to nurse them back to health with Pancake syrup and water every 4 hours. If I had not had to be gone today for 7 hours three of my 6 may have made it as they would perk up nicely every four hours.
Murray McMurray was very nice about issuing credit, but I honestly wished they had not had any problems at all.
