I ordered 25 chicks from Welp Hatchery and they will be here on Friday. My girls are so excited. I ordered 5 Californian White, 5 Barred Rock, 5 Buff Orpingtons, 5 New Hampshire Reds and 5 Black Austrolorps. I ordered all pullets, with the exception of the Barred Rocks, they are straight run. That way I will have a rooster or two. I sometimes feel guilty about having a mixed flock with one type rooster and if any set, then I will have mixed offspring. But then again, I am not selling them or breeding them for show. Just to replace my own hens later on. I would like some information on what others think of this.
