    I am ordering 6 chicks online (my pet chicken) and they guarantee 90% sexed. I am hoping for all females and their safe arrival. Any feedback on them--shipping, sexing, overall?

    I got my chickens from my pet chicken last year. I ordered 9 female chicks........8 survived the shipping. they were really good at giving me the cost back for that one. As they got older one of the 8 turned out to be a Rooster. i didn't complain about it because I figured it was still a good deal..........if I ended up with 2 or more roosters then I would complain.

    If you want more of a guarantee of only hens pick a sex link breed. Meyer hatchery is the supplier for my pet chicken. I got 3 golden buffs and 2 Dominiques. Those 2 were sexed and I am hoping they are female, if not they will probably have to be culled.
