I give them 10 out of 10 acorns. I've ordered a few times this year (had to break my seed order up because of costs) and I have been really happy with how fast their seeds come.  Also the free seeds are nice. They sent me a free pack when I ordered three packs of seeds.  The seeds I've sprouted from them so far have had really good sprouting success.  
I give this Critter Breeder 9 out of 10 acorns: https://www.mypetchicken.com/  I ordered day-old chicks from them a few years ago and am planning on using them again.  I've found they have lower minimum orders than a lot of other breeders.  My last order was for 15 chicks, I got them in early March, right as we got a cold snap here in the U.P. of Michigan. About half survived the trip.  MyPetChicken was very helpful and immediately offered replacements - we talked and decided to have them ship those replacements in April so that we wouldn't have a repeat of those lost chicks. They have a nice selection of breeds,  and I find their customer service very helpful. I only need a few new hens this year so we will be ordering from them again - their minimum depends on where you are and the time of year (it's higher when the weather is very cold).   I give them 9 instead of 10 because I wish they would add a few more breeds. Otherwise they are fantastic.

I give this seed company 10 out of 10 acorns.

I've ordered garlic from this company twice and have been very pleased with the products and customer service.  If you don't know what to get, you can order a starter pack and they will base your order on what will grow best in your area - that was what we started with a few years ago.  The garlic grows really well  - I usually save some to plant again, but we bought some new varieties this year.  

I highly recommend this company.
