    If you order their "mixes" do they generally tell you which breeds are in the group?

    I'm looking at Ideals pullet surprise special.

    I'm just a weirdo and want to know what I have, without having to guess, since I would likely guess wrong anyway.

    I haven't found any hatcheries that tell you what you're getting from the mixes.

    FYI - There are a number of us working on a database of progressive chick pictures to help people ID their mystery chicks. We need tons of photos, so if anyone is interested in letting us use your photos we'd really appreciate it!


    PS I got 50 mixed roos today to raise for meat. Let the mystery chicken ID begin!

    I ordered the Rainbow Layers from McMurray.

    Not a clue until they started growing.
