I have been trying to re home 4 roosters for the last 6 months with no luck, so this weekend I solved the problem..... I ordered enough pullets to offset the rooster to hen ratio of my flock. I ordered 30 of ideals surprise special pullets. so right now I have 6 roosters to 17 hens, the extra 30 should be enough don't you think? The reason I have so many roosters to hens is because I have lost at least 10 hens to predators this year, probably more. I have a huge raccoon/possum problem. I have killed 3 raccoons and 1 possum plus I know of 1 possum and 3 raccoons who got away. plus the chickens I just find dead in the morning and don't know what happened. I went to the chicken house on Friday and there was a small possum in the pen. He went out a hole no more than 4 inches wide. Straight through the fence I could barely even fit my hand through the hole and I have very small hands. Its ridicules. The one That was killed ( raccoon) actually Broke through the roof of the chicken house...'Anyone else notice that they always seem to get the hens instead of the roosters. sorry for rambling. so........ This is my first time with mail ordered chicks. They are supposed to ship wed. so I have a couple of questions. What time do they usually arrive at the post office? Has anyone else ordered the surprise special pullets? Is it a good deal or not?
