    My husband ordered me the "surprise box" for our anniversary. Have any of you ordered it this year? I would like an idea of what I might get.

    I read that. I was just curious if there was any breeder in particular that was in the box. A lot of people order from them so I was interested to see what they got compared to one another.

    Even if I received a Surprise shipment from them last week, chances are very good that your shipment next week would be made up of very different breeds, b/c those mixed shipments are "the left overs". Any chicks that aren't specifically ordered go into the Surprise box.
