Hi, I currently have 4 hens and have decided to add a few more. We raised these hens from chicks purchased at a local egg farm. When we went to the farm, we didn't have much choice in the type of chicks (nor did we really know enough to care). When I was younger, we raised 20 birds, also purchased at a local farm. This time around, I'd really like to select the breeds and hopefully choose if they are hens and not roos (of the first 6 chicks we got...4 were male!) I've seen many posts of people waiting for the PO to call with their chick orders and I just can't even imagine this. They send them in a box in the mail?? Is that really okay for them? They don't get tossed around and hurt? Can anyone share their experiences with this process to reassure me if this is something I want to do? I'd really appreciate it. Thanks!
