I just thought I would put this out here to let those who purchase from hatcheries know some responsiveness of Hatchery to consumer concerns. Meyer Hatchery is one near me and in response to so many questions regarding breed and sex updated their practice to mark males with legband for $6, have 100% gender accuracy policy, rare breeds come with legband ID, and hatching eggs are stamped with breed code. Breed labeling is free service. They also decreased minimums for winter for purchase. Check out your local hatcheries policies and make sure you are getting the service you want from them. Since there are so many breed sex questions on BYC I just want to make everyone aware of services available to prevent doubt in future especially when buying strait runs or an assortment. Kudos to Meyers for responding to consumer demands on labeling.
