    How reliable are they REALLY at sexing those tiny little chicks? Has anyone ordered sexed bantams from MPC?

    I ordered last spring. I got 10 chicks, 8 Silkies and 2 Frizzles. Cost me about $130 and I got only one roo when I wanted all pullets. Not too bad. However, every one of the Silkies died or had to be put down due to severe skeletal or neurological problems and all my emails to MPC went unanswered.

    I had a similar problem. I ordered 8 and it cost me over $90. Two were silkies. One of them died very shortly after its arrival and were not the colors I had ordered. My emails went unanswered as well.
