    I have a 3 month old Easter egger in my batch of sexed chicks from mypetchicken.com that is starting to look a little roostery.

    You hit the rooster lottery in the 90-95% sexing rate, sorry. Contact mpc and see what their policy is when you get a rooster. Most hatcheries just say bummer, unless you get more than their advertised average.
