So im looking to add variety to my flock next yr. And want to buy a assorted package. I live in Missouri and had thought of going with Cackle. I like to have a rainbow of color not a bunch of black chickens a bunch of red chickens was eyeballing the rare chick Straight Run package . So if anyone has got a mixed package were did you get it from and did you get a good assortment? And when is the best time to get the package? Was aiming for March or April figured it would be starting to get warm. Right know my favorite chickens i got are the Columbia Wyandotte love the black on white color. If it was not so expensive i would select 5 of each breed i liked but wow that is expensive that way.
