    Black Copper Maran
    Blue Orpington
    Dominique - not rare, can get from local farm store
    Cream Legbar
    Lavender Orpington
    Blue Ameraucana
    Blue Favaucana
    Red Star - not rare, can get from local farm store
    Salmon Faverolles

    Cedar Creek only sells straight run. If you want pullets only you'll have to go with one of the major hatcheries. MyPetChicken has some of those breeds but many are sold out for the year. Same with Meyer. Some of those breeds sure are pricey! $49 for a legbar pullet chick, $35 for lavender orpington pullet chicks, $20 for a blue ameraucana or blue orpington pullet chick.

    The Dominiques you get from a hatchery / feed store are sub-standard. PM me.....I am in Colorado

    I thought Cedar Creek could sex bc if you look at his chicks some have the option while others don't.

    Looks like they wing sex a few breeds, but they say it isn't as accurate as vent sexing so some males are possible. Only breed on your list that they sex are Marans.

    I can't think of anyone near you with Faverolles.
