    They get all sorts, not every TSC gets the same breeds.

    If they are sexed expect them to be BSL, RSL, EE, and the occasional specialty breed.

    Just talked to the closest TSC and they say they received pullets but no label of their breed. Just great. They need to get the stuff together

    They need to get their stuff together because the hatchery didn't label the box?

    I am willing to bet if clothes came into walmart unlabeled the employees couldn't tell you if it's a cotton polyester blend or pure cotton. I personally don't understand why so many people are so frustrated over it. Pick out 6 healthy energetic chicks, take them home and show them love and affection and watch what they grow up to be. Whether it's a BSL, RSL, RIR, BO, BA, BR or BCM they all are great egg layers and will not disappoint their new owners in 15-18 weeks when they start churning out eggs.

    Unless, of course the newbie picks out 6 nice big chicks, and finds out later that they are all CXR. IMO TSC has no business selling chicks if they can't tell the customer what they are getting. Further, If I went to Walmart, and there was clothing that was not labeled regarding fabric content, I'd be taking my business elsewhere.

    People have preferences when it comes to looks, I like the look of BR, RIR, and Isa browns, but I don't like the looks of leghorns, broilers, and some others they sell at TSC. It's just like with dogs, some breeds just suit people better than others.

    Which if you have preferences odds are you have researched the breeds and probably can identify a BR chick from a Leghorn chick correct?
