    I recently ordered eggs from MPC. They are breeds that can be seperated at hatching. I wondered if people could post pictures so I know what to expect they didn't have much pictures on their site. I got blue sex links, Rhodebars, Green Magnolias, and Cream Legbars. Any pics would be very much appreciated! Also I would like to know how successful you were with their shipped eggs if that's how you received the chicks.

    If you type "sex link chicks" in the search box, something should pop up that will help.

    Shipped eggs can be a hit and miss affair. I've read that some members consider a 50% hatch rate to be acceptable. I've only done it once and got 10% - never again for me [​IMG]

    yeah I've heard really low % which is really disappointing. Alright I'll have to try that. Lots of info to pile through [​IMG].

    I tried for green magnolias and haven't seen anything helpful. I got a little bit on Rhodebats but not much or concrete pics.
