    Tractor supply is notorious for mislabeling the breed of chicks they’re selling so I would not be surprised in the slightest if they’ve mislabeled the gender of their chicks as well.

    Also, like many have stated before, a 90% guarantee is pretty darn good with hatcheries considering all the variables that can come into play when having to sex chicks.

    I ordered 13 pullets of various breeds from Meyer's back in May, and it looks like I have indeed received 13 pullets.

    the pinkish one is a CX, forgot the age but its between 5 and 7 weeks, the grey one is half Naked Neck, 1/4 Red Ranger and 1/4 Ayam Cemani. I did not expect the grey meat because Cockerel had bright red Comb, ears and Waddles. He was processed at 19 weeks.
