We made the mistake(lol) of purchasing chicks from TSC! Now I have 8 pullets (hopefully) that were puchased as advertised Dominique. 5 have turned all black and look like little crows. 2 have the zebra pattern and one has a backward zebra pattern where the white is more dominant.

We have always had reds and I had recently rescued two chickens an Easter egger and Millie Fluer(she is seriously adorable) I enjoy them so much I wanted to add more colors to our flock.

Pictures attached(I think)
Thanks so much!

Thanks so much! I was thinking that too and thank you for clearing up the sex of the others. I purchased 5 Buff pullets in August and 3 turned out to be cockerels. I purchased these little guys in September. Just seemed like a convenient way to get chicks. We ordered our original flock years ago from Ideal Poultry and were very satisfied.

I got my first chicks from southern states. I have also gotten chicks from rural king (2 Wyandottes). I hatch now under a bantam and don’t like to buy chicks anymore. Mine are always stronger and healthier, I remember being surprised at their strength when I hatched for the first time, they would flap their wings and try to get away from me. If I were in a situation like I had some chicks, the mom died, then all but one of the chicks died then I would buy from a store because there isn’t time to hatch out some more. Otherwise, if I want chicks (I really don’t need more!) I hatch them. It’s a great education experience!
