First let me say, I have no affiliation with this company. We ordered 25 pullets in 9 different breeds (everything listed in my signature except the americaunas and the marans) at Mcmurrayhatchery.com We received 27 live chicks (none died in shipping!) even though they were in Iowa and we are in Ohio, and they were shipped over memorial day weekend. All were very healthy, except one. It was missing part of it's leg and couldn't walk. It was very weak, and much smaller than the other chicks. My husband "took care of" that one. It was sooo sad, and I really wish they hadn't shipped it to us. In their defense, they did send along another chick (this was in addition to the free exotic chick). Then, we had one accident with one that was completely our fault (someone accidentally put the waterer down on top of it, the poor thing). And now that they are 27 weeks old, we have 24 HENS!!! The only rooster in the bunch was the free exotic chick they sent (it was obviously going to be a rooster)! I think those are fantastic odds! They say to expect to lose 10% lost in shipping, and 10% to turn out to be roosters. As far as we can tell, all of the pullets ordered were hens. Hope this helps anyone considering an order.
