    How can hatcheries send you a cross? Isn't that false advertisement? I am not trying to be picky but I don't expect to get a bunch of crosses from a hatchery. I wasn't expecting the greatest specimens of their breeds but I at least want purebreds! Am I silly?

    Why aren't my SLWs feathering out as pretty? They are kinda ugly right now....

    My hatchery SLW feathered out ugly with the white lines. Now she is beautiful, I think as they mature the white lacing comes out better. Just give them time. Most chicks go through an ugly phase.
