Has anyone ordered the rare breed or rainbow egg layer mix? What did you receive? I'm mainly looking for colorful eggs so I'm leaning towards the rainbow egg layer mix but I'm curious if they sometimes include some of their more expensive 'rare breed' chicks in the special (not just rare/uncommon variations of more common breeds). I would only hold back a few layers and then sell the others, I'm not sure if the market in our area would really be interested in 'special breeds'. From Greenfire Farms website: Rainbow Egg Layer Mix For those looking exclusively for intriguing colors to fill your cartons with, we have put together an assortment of breeds that will give you a rainbow of color each time you collect eggs. Whether you are a homesteader that enjoys the novelty of a chocolate brown egg, or an egg vendor looking for that color pop that will set you apart at market, we have a diverse selection of chicks to fill your assortment. For $249 plus shipping, we will send you a mix of straight run chicks selected for variation in egg color. Your assortment will include breeds that, combined, will yield at least three different egg colors. That means of the egg colors we offer (blue, green, brown, tan, tinted, and white) your order will be a selection of at least three breeds, none of which will lay the same color egg as the others included. For example, you could get an order with Isbars, Legbars, and Marans which would lay green, blue, and chocolate brown eggs, respectively. We cannot guarantee the sex of these chicks and therefore cannot estimate how many hens you will receive. However, if we ship you chicks from any of our autosexing breeds, we promise to send only hens and never any roosters. Rare Breed Mix For $249, we will send you a dozen various chicks selected from our hatch. Availability differs from week to week, so we cannot honor any requests and we cannot guaranteed which breeds you will be receiving. However, we do guarantee that you will receive at least four different breeds in your mix. This selection is perfect for beginners that are looking to get started with rare breeds but aren't quite sure where to start. You'll get an introduction to some of our favorites and the exciting part is getting to watch them all grow out together and see the comparisons of different temperaments, plumage, etc. This is one of our best sellers!
