    The kittys were not happy. But they sure are cute huh? They are banties although I do not know the breed as the feed store didn't know. Anyone know?

    That's how I ended up with 3 EEs. [​IMG] I was early for dog agility class and thought I'd stop by this little feedstore down the road to look for poultry netting. I hear peeping and next thing I know I have not only 2 bags of poultry netting but 3 little chicks in a box. [​IMG]

    I really don't know but they resemble a friends ISA Brown chicks. I'm sure somebody on this forum knows. They are adorable. Are they sexed or from a straight run? [​IMG] [​IMG]

    They were supposed to be sexed, I believe from Ideal, the feed store gal said there was about an 80% accuracy rate.

    I get mine from Ideal and they told me 90% accuracy. So far I have ordered pullets and that is what I got. They all lay eggs.

    SO cute! Lucky your feed store doesn't insist on 6 at a time.. like ours do.. Thankfully, or not, the feed stores stop getting chicks in Sept..

    There is only one feed store that I know of that gets chicks in my area and they only sell straight run. My wife has said "no more roosters", so no feed store chicks for me [​IMG]
