    I just figured out the insidious plan by MacMurray hatchery. I'm slow that way. Y'see, they send you this "rare, exotic" chick as a freebie and then you're sitting here looking at it and you think "y'know, I really need to get this little guy some girl friends who look like him and breed up a bunch of these "rare and exotic" chicks. So you send in another order. And then in THAT order they send you a "rare and exotic" chick....... are you getting this now? It's an evil plot I tell's ya.

    Didn't work with us. Our freeby is a white cochin and our climate is wet with mud, iron heavy mud that stains white fieathers.

    My husband is now completely anti feather legged.

    Sounds like a plausible theory to me!

    Quote:Well, it looks like my new little rare chick is a Lakenvelder and as I look at the breed I'm thinking that they're awfully nice looking birds. Wouldn't mind having a few of those around the place. But I know if I order anything I'll get ANOTHER rare chick.....

    You think that is bad !? Mount Healthy send you 25 extras for every 50 that you order! Then you have to order 25 more of them to make them even!
