    Well I purchased three, day old Cream Legbar chicks from Meyers in May. Two were supposed to be female and one male. Well 5 months later I have three hens. I don't understand how Meyers could have screwed up sex link chicks but it is what it is. Now I have one Lavender Orpington Rooster trying his best to service 15 hens. Since my Legbars are hatchery birds I'm not looking for a show bird, just a nice Cream Legbar cockerel around 5 months or older.

    Thanks,

    Bob

    Bob, Meyer did the same thing with my order. I ordered six Buff Brahmas. One was supposed to be male. As they matured, I realized I have all hens. So I have a Lavendar Orpington rooster that I bought, just because he's pretty and was around the same age. Same here...I'm not interested in breeding for show, so that's OK, but I sure wish I had the rooster I wanted.

    Good luck in your search!
