    I guess I am reading this correctly that if you by at least 50 chicks at normal price you can chose to get 25 FREE extra cockerels added to the order ? http://www.mthealthy.com/store/948458/product/Bonusck?sitecookie=5f712a5a21ba71ed45ca8a1a3bf1a5a7

    I'm
    thinking about getting some sexlink hens to start back up selling eating eggs again and I always growoff exstra roos to sell anyway so that would be a nice little bonus for me. Anyone else tried them ??? If so where they all mostly one breed or some of everything ?

    I'm not sure but I am interested to hear what others have to say.
    I ordered Golden Comets from Mt. Healthy last April and EEs in Oct. All are super friendly, beautiful, healthy birds. No losses during shipping etc. [​IMG]

    I ordered 50 pullets last year and got the 25 free birds. The free ones were Easter Egger Roos. They grew out big enough to butcher and I even sold a few. They send whatever they happen to have extra that day so it could be anything.

    I ordered about 1000 chicks from them last year, each time they would send me 100 extra free. Each time the 100 i got free were of the same breed. I got SLWs, Sex-links, easter eggers/americaunas, RIRs, New Hampshiers, Buff Orpingtons, and i think white Leghorns once. I did rasie some of these up and they were not all roosters. It was about 75% roosters and 25% hens. They send what ever they have left over, if they have a lot of orders for pullets then you will get mostly roosters, if they dont have many pullet orders then you will get more pullets in your free chicks.
