    I know I am late in trying to order some chicks for april 20, but us kids (okay we are old but she is still mom) just came to the idea of getting mom some chicks. She gets the TSC specials every year. This year we wanted to get her an assortment of "ugly and weird" chicks to up her collection. However, she mentioned she likes frizzles and tophats. So I am in need of finding some quickly. Please help. I have checked around and everybody is out of Frizzles and only have roos of Tophats. She lives in KY.

    I know Ideal does straight run on Top-hats. (At least last time I checked.) So you could have both hens and roos.

    Meyer Hatchery sexes their Top-hats as I'm getting some next week. They don't sex frizzles, though.

    McMurray sexes their Top-hats but I'm not sure of their frizzles.

    Cackle Hatchery doesn't sex either like Ideal I believe. (correct me if I'm wrong.)

    MyPetChicken does both but it costs more if you want sexed bantams. (Around ten dollors per female bantam!)

    From what I've heard, some of the hatcheries have a waiting list now for until this summer. You'll have to check in with them to see. I hope this helps!
