    We ordered a total of 5, and now I believe our silkie and polish pullets are both cockerels. The polish started to crow this morning and our silkie has a large comb and wattles, and new iridescent little tail feathers coming out of the fluff. They're about 11 weeks old. I'm still trying to decide if the polish looks like a roo, or if it's just a crowing pullet. Both have been feisty since peep-hood, though! So, looking back, I can't say I'm surprised. Just disappointed. It probably had to happen some time, since sexing isn't perfect.

    So I think we're down to two easter egger pullets. (One chick died very early.) I'm pretty sure they are females, and they are beautiful and healthy.

    Hm.... That is certainly a strange consolation prize. I'm sorry to hear that MPC hasn't treated you well. Can you keep roos? I hope so, and I hope they are ALL hens. Good Luck

    I recommend that you call them. I had some order snafus and they were really responsive about taking care of the problems. Call the 800# & ask for Stephanie. She was great to work with.

    They claimed they could guarantee you a silkie pullet? [​IMG]

    Not that is solves anyones problem, but I really like the chicken poop lip balm.(And it has a great disclaimer on the tube 'Contains no poop')

    I think you should call them and try to work it out over the phone.

    Good Luck,

    Isn't the sexing only 90% accurate? So, the odds would be very good that you would get 90% pullets, but the odds are also there that you can get roos. Sounds like your order had all the 10% in it. Maybe they would send you some more.

    Good luck!
