    With my order of bantam cochins I received a free rare chick from MM. It is an EE cockerel. He is 10 weeks old and causing all sorts of problems with my cochins. I put him in with the other cockerels and they all gang up on him. So I put him in with my pullets and he beats them up. :thun So he has to go. He is really a pretty bird but I have no use for an EE roo. Please someone save him from becoming dog food. I live in Springport, MI which is south of Lansing. I will even send a bag of food home with him.

    Wish I was closer I would sure take him off your hands. If you don't mind me asking, where did you get the EE's from? I want some and need advice as to where to go.

    The EE was a free rare chick from Murray McMurray. Of all the rare they had listed, the EE was the one I wanted the least. Might have known that was what I was getting though. I now have chicks from MM and Ideal. The difference is like day and night. I will order from MM any day over Ideal. The little extra in cost is well worth the difference in quality. Just my opinion and I am no expert my any means. My MM chicks are beautiful and very healthy. The Ideal chicks, although very cute, are just not as good quality. The foot feathering is the most noticable difference. All of my cochins from MM are deffinately not mixed breed. A few from Ideal are questionable. There are many hatcheries out there to choose from. This is just my opinion and I am sure there are those who have bought from Ideal that are very happy with the chicks they received. Somewhere in all these emails if a topic on different hatcheries. If you can find it there is a great deal of info on many different places to get your chicks. Good luck.
