    Today I took a chance and ordered the 'All Pullet Rainbow Pack (25 chicks)' from Meyer Hatchery. I figured because I love the looks of so many different chickens, I may as well add a little surprise into my new flock. I went ahead and ordered 1 Silver Laced Wyandotte, 1 Easter Egger, and 3 Blue Silkies along with my order so that I know for whatever reason, If I get a clump of one certain kind more than others, I will atleast have exactly what I want. Better safe than sorry, Though I will love them all the same. Not picky :)

    I was just wondering out of curiosity if anyone has ordered the rainbow pack, what kind of mix you received. Pictures absolutely welcome. :)

    Sounds interesting & fun, let us know what you get!! Are Bantams included in rainbow packs? I'd be interested in this rainbow pack, but I don't want bantams.

    I have ordered their rainbow pack before. Last time I got about 8 Easter Eggers, two crested Polish, several Silver Lakenvelders, some German Spitzhauben and the remainder were light brown leghorns. One ended up being a roo.

    I was very happy with the assortment.

    I have dealt with Meyer a number of times and always had good service. I have purchased the Rainbow pack and liked the selection.

    As far as I know, no bantams. I ordered the bantams specifically to keep for my best friend :)

    I've never ordered the rainbow asst. but six weeks ago I ordered the brown egg layer asst. of 15 chicks and was very pleased. Came in overnight, all alive, happy and healthy. Selection was great also, five different types of chicks out of fifteen. I would order there again for sure.
