    I'm so happy got my 60 peepers as my 2yr old son calls them!

    They are unsexed plymouth rocks. My hope is they are close to a 50/50 split. will cull all the roosters except one at 20weeks. Keeping the hens for laying. and next year maybe trying hatching a couple. See how it goes??

    Wow can not believe the number of people that are already asking to be on the list for eggs!!I just got them today LOL

    Hope everyone that got chicks today is as happy as my clan . [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    hehe My 2 year old son calls em' peepers too [​IMG]

    We got ours today as well, only 10 though, not near as many as you. If you are wanting to keep a roo, I think the general rule of thumb is 1 roo for every 10 hens. so you may wanna keep more than just the one?
