    I was really excited to find they sexed their sultans... It's what won me over. I went back to the site and it says they arn't going to hatch them this comming year, but there new2011 catalog still offers them.

    Not sure; what I do know is that I ordered 3 Sultan pullets last spring (that was all I was ordering) and on the day that they were supposed to ship out, we got a call saying that this year was a poor hatch. We were told that this specific hatch was no different from the rest of the year, and that we could be put on a list for next hatch or chose another breed, or both. I said I'd like to be called if there is a better hatch but chose to pick a new breed anyway. My new order came okay, but we never got a call back from them regarding Sultans. I assumed I was never put on a list but if they have still been having issues, that could explain it.

    Very sad, they offer awesome Sultans.

    I've purchased some nice Blue Salmon Faverolle Bantams from Hattrick.... love them... the roosters are the first I've had to not so aggressiveness... I think Cackle is too far away... for me... thanks for the suggestion though. So I think I'm going with a Sultan breeder a few BYC members suggested... [​IMG]
