I ordered seven female chicks. All of them survived but I ended up with a rooster. We realized the "she" was a "he" when he first crowed and by then it was too late to return him. He is a pretty (barred rock) and nice (lets us carry him) boy but we will have to get rid of him. We just can't risk having more chicks and he is too loud for the neighbors. I am glad that all of the chicks lived, but a little disappointed that I will have to let go of a really friendly rooster.
