I have noticed most (not all) hatcheries having a heavy layer bargain (usually 5-10 cents cheaper per bird). I was wondering if anyone had an experiance or opinion on this way of raising chicks. I have seen many people post they have went and ordered many chicks 2 of one breed and 3 of another and enjoying figuring out the breeds and such, but I was wondering about these type assortments. I realize they are left overs after they fill everyone else's orders since they cannot count their chickens before they hatch amd also a few late cancelations, that may mean you end up out of 50 chicks you might get 3 of one breed and 47 of another or 2 of 25 different breeds. but I want to hear your stories on this.
