Incorrect breed labelling - What's the worst you've seen?

    As the title says, what is the most ridiculous incorrect breed labelling you have come across in stores, online, etc?
    Or perhaps the breed was correct but the sexing was not, or there were sex links sold straight run.

    At my local TSC I have run into a few funny instances.
    1) BR sold straight run (super easy to sex)
    2) "Cinnamon Queens" labelled on a bin of black chicks.

    And of course, the infamous EE labelled "Ameraucana"

    At Grange... they put several breeds in one bin and you might not read the correct label... since they are obscure.

    It wasn't personal... but I saw another BYC'er this past season who bought "sex link" pullets, and ALL were in fact cockerels. :barnie

    Oh boy... In know TSC is notorious for their mislabeled breeds... :pop

    Personally, I saw little black chicks with dotted heads (probably BR or Dom. I didn't see the comb) in the Australorp bin.

    Yep, bought them on purpose :) Other customers might not know what they bought though, and that's gonna be quite a surprise.
