    So I ordered a batch of day old bantams from murray/McMurray hatchery. They should be here Monday. I really wanted hens only, but all the bantams were listed as straight run? Do ya'll know of a hatchery that sexes bantams? Sure hope I don't get all Roos....I love my Roos, but we are already maxing out on the roosters :)

    My Pet Chicken (MPC) hatchery sexes bantams, but I think they are about the only ones!

    Yes, as far as I know MPC are the only ones. I've ordered small batches of sexed bantam pullets a couple of times from them and never gotten a roo yet.
