How good are they at sexing chicks? I just order 25 pullets can I expect a Roo or 2 from this? It would be a good thing if it did happen. I did not get the st run for fear of 15 or more roos. So I figure I would take the chance of 25 all pullets and hope for a roo or 2. If not I am sure I can find a couple local.

Well, not buying one of the feather sexed colors. I know some hatcheries have been having mistakes. I guess it can happen any time.

I have bought from a local feed store who buys from hatcheries and I still ended up with one rooster. They guaranteed 95% hens.

Although I did not want one, I was glad because now I am making babies..

I usually buy only roos from them and the sexing is pretty close to 100%, but I'm not sure if this info will help you
... lol good luck

Quote:By feather sexing they are referring to the wing feathers. if you spread out the wing feather on up to a week old chick and see 1 row of feathers its a male, if you see 2 rows of feathers its a female. I have sexed many chicks this way.

I ordered 25 from Mt. Healthy, they sent 27, and we only got one roo. Chicks were all healthy & vigorous.
