    I just checked MPC, and it looks like they WILL have welsummers for 2009, so you can get your 4, chicken woman!

    Quote:This is what I was told last spring when I was going to buy some from them, The told me they would sex them for extra $$ and if I got any roosters they would refund me, I never got any from them so not sure how right they are (I found some of better quality from a breeder in my area)

    Also if you do call you should ask them since you cant really sex a silkie in till its 5-7 months if they will still refund your money that late.

    I'll be sure to ask because I know silkies are one of the hardest to sex.

    Yay, chickies!! [​IMG]

    Are you going to call to place the order Friday or next week? I emailed Ideal 2 weeks ago and the woman that responded told me to place my order anytime after the first, the earlier the better though.

    I think we are going to have real fun trying to figure out which is which when the order arrives lol
