    WOW...i still can't get this out of my head that they can sex day old polish and send them to my door. June 15th they will be shipping me..

    4 white silkies
    1 GLW Pullet
    1 Welsummer Pullet
    1 GL Polish Pullet!
    1 Buff Polish Pullet!

    Isin't that crazy??? I even asked the operator when i made my order about a month ago..and she said " yep, they can sex'em" I was just blown away...even in their catalog they list they can send you pullet polish!!! Isin't that great?!!!!!!!!!

    Have any of you ordered polish pullet's from Meyer's?? I would love to hear how they turned out!! [​IMG]

    We didn't order from Meyer, but from McMurray, who also sexes Polish. We ordered 2 golden laced polish pullets which we got in April and that is just what we got. We love them. [​IMG] Have fun with your chicks!

    Just a small warning, not to burst any bubbles. I ordered through My Pet Chicken who gets their chicks from Meyer. Our Golden Polish "pullet" started crowing this morning. I'm still trying to decide if it looks like a cockerel or if it's just a crowing pullet. Hard to say, but it pretty much deflated me this morning. I guess that's how it goes, regardless of where you get chicks. Sorry.

    Well there will always be mistake it is not full proof. Most hatchiers list a 90% sex rate some chicks it is just hard to tell. I ordered 25 pullets from MT Healthy hoping for a mistake of a roo or two and I got it. Now when ordering a small amount that is not what you want or need but it does happen.
