    Well, my friend had a re order from Ideal. So they sent in a few warmer roos. But she thinks, one of the supposed roos, is a pullet. How many percent are they accurate? Any one get the opposite gender ordered?

    I have received 5 orders from Ideal, totalling maybe 50 tops. I usually order females and only twice have I received a roo instead of a hen.

    The times that I ordered Roos, I got Roos.

    Ideals guarantees a 90% accuracy. I would say that I have always had greater than 90%.

    Out of my surviving packing peanuts I had 1 hen and 2 roos.
    My replacement order of Iowa Blues had 1 to many roosters which means I have one to few hens but over all I would say they were pretty good.
    Of course they do not sex bantums.
