    Hi


    i've posted that I got a roo instead of a hen and I think I may keep him. It will depend on his manners :)

    In the same order as my roo my brother also has one. When we ordered we got all hens. I know that it isn't 100% sure that you won't get a roo but should or does the hatchery replace it for you?

    We sent in a second order, they are going to send me a replacement chick ... should I call and let them know about my brother's?

    you could call them and tell them about his as well but know this when you buy day olds from a hatchery or any feed store it is only a 50/50 shot that you won't get a roo I got my first batch and it had 3 roos in it no big deal I was going to order a roo of the breed when they got a little bigger and then I went to a different feed store and now I got one for sure and the rest are wait and sees. so they very well may replace it so I would call them but you still have the roo to deal with.

    Good luck to you and your brother
