    I was thinking of ordering some chicks from Ideal Poultry, but do not want any extra males...and i want all the pullets i order to be pullets...i don't want to think its a pullet and turn in to a rooo! Is ideal pretty accurate on there sexing of birds?

    Thanks

    Most all hatheries can only guarantee 90 to 95% acuracy. As a sexer I can tell you from experiance that's the best anyone can guarantee.

    My last order off 100 pullets from Ideal was 101 pullets with the extras they sent and 2 cockrells. Pretty good odds I thought.

    NO ONE can give you 100% accuracy when it comes to sexing chicks.
    And if they say they can then their lying.

    I had 24/24. one died before determining it's sex. It died accidentally, by no fault of Ideal.
    I was happy with their services.

    if you dont want the extra males (packing peanuts) tell them not to add them.

    They have done pretty good at sexing for me . [​IMG] You don't have to have the packing peanuts . But nobody can give a 100 % .

    No hatchery can give you 100% accuracy, I ordered from Ideal once and everything I ordered was correct

    They are having a special on Assorted Pullets for like $1.50 each I think right now. I had a great experience with Ideal. haven't ordered any sexed chickens from them tho. Be sure and tell the in the comments you dont want any extras I got a couple extras in mine.
