    I ordered some points from porters. 2 red slate 4 blue slate and 9 breeders choice.according to the packing list I received 2 blacks, 2 auburn, 2 red slates, 2 chocolates, 4 blue slate, 2 self blues, 2 white Holland's. Of those I only had a handful of survivors. Any guesses at what's left? I'm praying my red and blue slates survived.

    It looks like you have two bourbon red, two slate, an auburn, a black, and a white. Have you contacted them? I would be especially upset about the red slate. I wanted some of those so bad but none of the eggs I bought hatched.

    I placed the order back in March..June is a busy month for me as I'm gone 3 weeks. I sent them an email asking for a ballpark estimate of when my order would ship, I got no response. Then Tuesday I'm out of town in a meeting and get an email saying my order shipped so I had to scramble to figure out who would pick them up,and care for them and as a result of not being prepared I had heavy casualties.

    That's really messed up. I would be upset with the lack of communication with any sort of order, but considering we're talking living animals it is especially unacceptable!
