    I have several different breeds of chicks, all female, hatched June 7. Most are $3.50 each, the Aracaunas are $4.00 each.

    Unless they are sex linked. I sold chicks this spring that were all girls, sex linked from my barred rock girls.

    Maybe they ordered them from a hatchery as pullets and only wanted a few and are selling the rest......?

    I sold my three week old barred rocks to the feed store and some yahoo was in there said "Those are all roos." I turned on him and asked how he knew - "See their combs? They are light, roos are light" [​IMG] I looked at him and said "Buster you got that backwards" took my $20 and left.
