    I am planning on getting standards either in the fall or next year, depending on when I get this coop I'm planning done. I will have a 8x4 pen for standards that I am wanting to have ONLY hens in. I had standards before, but sold the flock. Now all my egg customers are freaking. I miss the standards and want to get more. I did have RIR, Buff Orp, Black Sex Links (which I loved her) Dominiques, EEs and Brahmas. I am unsure if the sexing is good for standards. If they are accurate any GOOD LAYER is fine. If not, then I want sex links. I want chickens to give an egg a day or every two days. There will be 8 hens. Any help is welcome. I don't have a favorite hatchery. Links would be great.

    These are the big names in hatcheries. Google them McMurray, Ideal, Strombergs

    sexers are 99.9% accurate with day olds
