Farwest told us they sell "over hatch' if you call to reserve then on Tuesday for Wednesday pickup but no one answered the phone or returned our call. I suspect they are to disorganized to deal with small purchases and now a few people have now told me that there have been sexing issues but no one complains about the health or quality of the chicks. I decided to just drive over next Wednesday morning to see what they had but then I found three of the five breeds we wanted on Craigslist and added two Buff Orpingtons because the two that we already have are such reliable layers.
The guy we ended up getting our chicks from was pretty disorganized and a bit gruff but the chicks ($44.00 for eight) are so spry and active it more than made up.
The Black Copper Marans where not sexed but they both have long feathers on their wingtip indication they are hens though I am not positive that this is one of the breeds that can be sexed like this II am hoping for the best.
If you go be sure to post about it, I am interested to hear.
