My Pet Chicken, a Review

  • Customer Service & Shipment of Baby Chicks
  • How My Pet Chicken Handled a Problem Shipment

My Pet Chicken is one, if not the only one who ships sexed Silkie Bantams and Millie Fleurs. They also are a hatchery that ships only a few birds, they definitely deserve points for that. My Pet Chicken is high on my list of choices for Ornamental chicks, and I’ve never had a problem with a baby chick shipment, until now.

My order of six chicks arrived yesterday, nicely packed with plenty of a straw- like bedding in a nice sturdy box with ample ventilation. They were shipped on Monday and they arrived Tuesday at 2pm, exactly what I expected.

Unfortunately they were not handled with care either by the airlines or USPS, one Silkie was dead, one Silkie and a Mille Fleur had broken legs. I was devastated. I’ve mail ordered chicks many times over the last fifteen years with at least a 95% success rate. I definitely wasn’t expecting to have any problems of this magnitude.

Unfortunately, I had to cull the injured chicks, and I must say, even though I’ve had my share of unpleasant tasks over the years having chickens… it was still traumatizing. It’s done, I’m over it, and focusing on my three healthy fuzzy butt chicks.

How Did My Pet Chicken Handle the Situation?

I called My Pet Chicken informing them of the poor arrival of my chicks. I didn’t know what I was expecting… after all, it wasn’t their fault this happened. Nevertheless, maybe I just needed to vent. So glad I called, customer service was beyond nice, genuinely compassionate, and to my surprise, offered to send me replacement chicks or a refund for the 3 chicks lost. If that’s not customer satisfaction I don’t know what is. My Pet Chicken gets an A+ from me. 🙂

No Mess RentACoop PVC Chicken Feeder Arrives

A Review of the RentACoop Chicken Feeder

This is the best feeder I’ve ever had.  My hens used it right away, and the problem of feed waste is over.

  • Nice quality
  • EASY to install
  • Fast delivery.
  • Most Important, no more waste. My hens can’t scratched the feed.

Note: My birds are young, that’s why the feeder is low on the fence. The proper height of drinkers & feeders is easy to remember. Never hang them higher than a chicken’s back.
It’s also a good idea to keep the old feeding station in place until you’re sure they’ve learned to use the new one. The feeder does state this is for birds 12 weeks & older.

Big News! No-Crow Rooster Collar

Update: Tried the No-Crow Rooster Collar… I’m not impressed. My Rooster was VERY uncomfortable, looked like I was choking him…… & could still crow.

Does this mean the semi-urban backyard chicken keeper can finally have a rooster? I don’t know! I’ll be watching for the reviews on this product, hopefully it will be positive.

The news of this No Crow Rooster Collar came in my email today from My Pet Chicken. You can learn more by visiting their website, but here’s a sneak peek of what they have to say…

NO CROW

New! Special introductory price! Can’t have crowing? You’re in luck. An enterprising, doting backyarder who wanted both roosters and happy neighbors decided to take matters into her own hands. She designed, tested, tweaked, tweaked some more, and finally patented the world’s only collar designed to dramatically reduce both the volume and the frequency of crowing.
