    You've gotten 3 roosters from MPC, and you paid for all females.
    I ordered 11 chicks (supposedly all hens) and like I said 3 are roosters!!!

    I've written them 3 times and no response. Before I got my chicks they were really helpful.

    I'm kinda feeling bad ~

    If it were I, I would continue trying to contact them. They probably cannot send you 3 chicks safely, but they may be able to refund you for those 3 males.

    As long as you didnt order straight run I would call and want more or a refund for those.

    Does it say somewhere on MPC's website what their % is on sexing errors? I know with Ideal it's 10%, which is about what I got with my order. I doubt MPC is claiming much better a rate, since that's about what feather sexing day olds is, 90% accurate.
    You may not hear back from there, although that would scream lousey customer service, because sexing errors are considered acceptable.
    Best to find homes for your extra roos and chalk it up to a learning experience. [​IMG]
