    Ordered chicks yesterday, however one breed that I wanted so badly , The Delawares, won't be ready til June, so I hope they let me pick out something else so I can rec'v order sooner than that. My inlaws already mail ordered the form already but I emailed Cackles them to see if they will offer an exchange (Cackles) The others I ordered were Partridge Rocks. Since I can't get the Delawares, I may go with Buff Orpingtons (if they are readily avail) but does anyone know if the Rocks are prone to bullying something gentle and calm like the Orpintons?
