    2 barred rocks, 4 amber sexlinks, 2 buff brahmas, and 4 "red pullets" I say red pullets because that's what they called them at Tractor Supply. I', not sure if they are gold comets, RIR or what. Guess it will be a suprise.

    gotta love those mysterious TSC birds. It looks like one of mine is a Golden Comet, the jury is still out on the other [​IMG]

    I am in your boat. Half the fun is finding out. I also went with a mixed bag of chicks. (mostly so we could tell them apart, they are pets who give us eggs to us)

    Very cute!!! Our "Red Pullet" bin had Red Stars, Rhode Island Reds, and Buff Orpingtons in it. I'd love to know the criteria they go by for putting chicks in specific bins.

    Guess I was lucky enough to get there when they were at least somewhat separated. I went back a few days later and they were all mixed up. Probably gonna be some disappointed people if they don't know what to look for.

    I'm still trying to figure out what mixed bantams that Mt. Healthy sends to our local TSC. I know some of the breeds they sell, but wish I could find a complete list. Anyone have any idea? It's not on their website.
