    I usually hatch myself order eggs here but this summer I hatched over 150 eggs and only have 25 hens sooo I want a nice laying group and then will work on my own special ones for fun.So seramas are hatching now,I have about 40 bantams 1-2m out in the barn coop that I have hatched out but sure is nice knowing the order is all pullets.

    Still want to see pictures...I wonder how reliable the hatcheries are as far as sexing them? I have bought locally & not been too impressed with some of what I have. It was morre like a pity purchase. I think I would be much more appreciative of something I raised myself rather than got at (supposedly) 5 months old or 'already laying' only to find that neither has been the case.

    (BTW--I reported the above spam post)

    Looks like your one exotic is an Easter Egger.

    How long ago did you order?

    I was on the McMurray site yesterday and it looks like they are almost done until the 1st of February.
