    I got it last year and was very happy. There were about 10 or 11 different breeds in the 25 chicks I got, including some Polish.

    2 roos/ 25 is about what I've consistently gotten from MM when ordering all pullets--sex-link excepted. 92% is a good average for day-old sexing. Interestingly, BTW, I did get 6 straight run EE's from them this spring and it seems only 2 are roos.
