    I was wondering if anyone has ordered the rainbow egg-layers assortment from my pet chicken. I was wanting to get some EE, BR, and the rainbow layers, then sell off the extras. I don't know that I can do this now, so I was wondering if the BR and EE were included in your order? I know they can be, I was just wondering your experience was [​IMG] Thanks [​IMG]

    I ordered mine Saturday and they sould be in on the 15th or 16th. I'm so excited!! I'm pretty sure that EEs will be in the order because that is one of the specials too. I bet that they have a lot of those. Sorry, I can't help with your question but I did order them! [​IMG]

    I'm trying to decide if I want to get just the rainbow layers, or the rainbows and the barred rocks. I'm sure there would be some EE in the rainbows, but idk about the rocks. They are listed as 'possible', but that doesn't mean anything. Too bad you can't request to get or not get some breeds [​IMG]

    I order the MPC Rainbow Pullet special and they arrived last Thursday. Here is the post that includes a lot of pictures. I have 2 BR and I know of 3 EE (green legs), but as I understand it EE don't necessarily have to have green legs.

    No, puffy cheeks would be a better indicator of an EE, though they don't always have those either.​

    Ack!! My chicks were supposed to be shipped next Monday, but I got a call that they were sent out today!! [​IMG] And our stupid car is broke down again!! A fellow BYCer has volunteered to pick them up for me, and spoil them until our chickenstock on Saturday! I can't believe they'll be here so soon!! [​IMG]
