    This summer I plan to order chicks from McMurray, using their "brown egg layer" special. This is a collection of 25 hen chicks from at least 5 different breeds from a field of about 20 breeds. Has anyone had experience with this special offer...ie. which breeds did you get? Were they mostly something weird like "turkens", or were they more standard breeds?

    This question has been asked many times. Most get a small assortment of variety birds that is then topped off with red stars and black stars. Everyone is usually very happy!! Good luck with your new chicks.
