We received our 5 Golden Laced Wyadottes hens in perfect shape. Maybe had a 2 week wait from the time of ordering, to being born and arriving following day. This all happened exactly as they told us in emails. They were very healthy and our grand daughter was so excited to pick them up. It has now been 2 weeks since they were born and they are doing great. They jump right onto our arm or shoulder and just sit there and perch there like pet parakeets and love flying back and forth to us. They have the best personalities and we have been very happy ordering them from Purely Poultry. Thanks for the great job.
