What I really want, and think I can echo most of the urban-chicken owners, is for them to START SEXING BANTAMS !!! I have heard from Ideal and McMurray, and a zillion others that I called that they can't sex bantams because they are so small. Well, that is just not true. Mypetchicken.com sexes bantams, and has a thriving business catering to the pet-chicken-keeper and urban chicken owner by 1. Sexing Bantams and 2. Shipping small quantities by using heating pads to keep them warm. In the spring I ordered 8 bantam cochin females and got them, all healthy, and 7/8 of them were female! (there was one roo, but that is close to the 90% sexing rate for standards!) We are willing to pay more! These are pets! I paid $10 a chick for my bantam cochins, and would happily order more from mypetchicken.com (great chicks, great service) but they do not carry some of the cochin varieties that I want! So, sex those bantams, ship them to us in smaller numbers-- even shipping as few as7 or 8 would be great for a lot of us (thank you Ideal for shipping by minimum price, rather than by 25 chicks!) For those who are looking and find what they want at mypetchicken.com-- order from them! But for other varieties, why doesn't everyone get on board with sexing bantams??????
