I was meticulous in all my preplanning, the reading, the notes, the researching. I thought I picked a great little flock of eggers out- nice, quiet, winter hardy, good producers and I put my orders in early.
I ordered: 2 Plymouth Barred Rock, 2 Lavender Orpingtons, 2 Buff Orpingtons, 2 EEs and 2 Black Copper Marans.
So far 6 chicks have arrived.
One was apparently mistaken. Not a Barred Plymouth Rock at all, thought it was a BSL and thus a pullet, now looking like a Roo.
Got two Lavender Orpingtons from a local breeder. Looking like those are both roos too. And the local breeder I've been calling for a week and a half for the Marans looks like he might not come through.
My town has an ordinance no roosters and I'm suppose to be sharing this bunch with my friend and she can't take roosters either. Looking like I might get lucky if I end up with three pullets
