    Hi!!
    I'm not sure where to put this so I put here in random ramblings (even though is not.)[​IMG]. I've been looking for a chick hatchery where I can buy bantam chicks that are female and not straight run. Ideal poultry only sells straight run, MyPetChicken sell it for a ridiculous price, and I can seem to find one! If you could help me out I would appreciate it!![​IMG]

    Murray McMurray only does straight run also. I was just calculating how much it would cost to get 9 female bantams from MyPetChicken (that's the least you can get) and it totaled to
    $148.96!(plus shipping)

    Bantam chicks are not sexed by most hatcheries, they are too tiny.

    I've ordered bantams in the past from Ideal Poultry and have been happy with their birds and service.

    I was going to do them, but I can't take any chances of getting a rooster. (since I have 3 already and its a pain to get rid of.)
    Did you get more girls then boys?
