Looking for advice... AFTER the fact. I am very excited to have just purchased some black copper marans from purely poultry. I thought I did my research & felt this looked like a very reputable source. I was extremely pleased with the customer service & am excited to get my birdies in a month. My main concern was that they're straight run & I didn't want to pay $18 a bird for what could result in all roosters. So, I posted an ad on CraigsList to share the roosters once I know which ones are roosters since I only really want a couple of those. I received a negative response to my post by someone who had had a bad experience whereby all but 2 chicks died & they are still waiting for the issue to be resolved. Please tell me this is an uncommon occurrence with PurelyPoultry as it's a very expensive learning experience from a small farmer. PS. I know there are LOTS of threads about marans & PurelyPoultry on here but they are all so long I didn't have the time to go through all of them. Thanks!
