    I ordered a surprise hatchery special from cackle and got about 35 chicks. They sent an AWESOME selection and after one of my favorite roosters was killed by a raccoon, I was hoping to choose another pretty guy to keep. However, it looks like I have mostly ALL hens! I have a polish roo it looks like, and a silver spangled hamburg roo, but I don't think I want to keep either of those. Who would've thought I'd be sad to get all hens! LOL

    I did pretty well with my modern bantams too. I ended up 10 roos, and 15 hens.

    Sounds like you got a great selection. It's nice to hear from someone that actually is hoping for a Roo!

    Seriously - I'm bummed I have a Buff Orpington roo. You can have him but you'd have to get him somehow.....
