    Hello, i was wondering how long it usually takes for most ornamental's to be 'sold out' at IDEAL. Every time i have looked, all of the breeds i wanted to buy have been sold out (i.e Kraienkoppes)

    When I bought some Kraeinkoppes, I didn't know anything about breeds and found them at the feed store, and just bought what looked healthy.

    I wonder if they sell out to feed stores. This feed store has people asking for particular breeds and orders what people say they want. Of course half of the chicks end up being sold openly.

    BTW, they may very well be considered an ornamental, but I'll take a Kraienkoppe broody/mama any day!
