    At a future date (namely after payday when I'm not broke from buying chicken food [​IMG] ), I would like to get an assortment of chicks.

    Sandhill has an end-of-season thing that sounds good, only it has to be paid for relatively soon and isn't shipped out until October or so. And a couple of the breeds I think I'd want are already sold out for the entire season.

    Where did you guys get your assortments of "hmmm, now what chick IS that!?" ? Where would you NOT recommend getting an assortment package?

    BTW, I'm mostly considering standard breeds. I've thought about a bantam cochin mix, but thought is all I've done.

    Have a great week! [​IMG]

    I'm sure you can get a good asortment at any hatchery. However, I'm bias and have to say my most interesting assortments come from back yard mutt eggs. Never know what you will get!

    Well, I should be receiving 25 assorted brown egger's tomorrow from Meyer's. I hope I get a nice assortment. I was hoping they'd arrive today since they were shipped yesterday, no such luck. I hope they won't get too cold........ Any one else order their assortment?????
