    I am considering placing an order with them. Anyone used them before?

    Well, initially they told me they could sex the polish breeds, now I just got email saying that they could not.

    I am waiting for clarification, but I expect the initial email was in error...

    Very sad that I am unable to find ANY female polish chicks!

    I am going to have an empty coop! *SOB*

    Well... I am being paranoid. I canceled my McMurray order due to the AE uncertainty. I wanted to wait to see how the situation plays out before ordering from them especially since the polish breed has been affected.

    Unfortunately, I am unwilling to wait that long.

    The good news is that Meyer hatchery also sexes their Polish chicks, so I just placed an order with them for a dozen chicks for the end of April!

    kbarrett, I know, I am SO excited!

    I checked their website a thousand times and it said they were sold out!

    But when the fourth person mentioned them, I called them out of sheer desperation! The first thing the rep said was, "Oh, yeah, the website is a little whacked."

    Turns out they had a few left! Woo!
