Hi! 7 weeks ago we bought 4 pullets from Tractor Supply, and 2 pullets from Family Farm and Feed. One of our TSC Leghorns is absolutely a cockerl, and it now appears that Our black Jersey Giant from Family Farm and Feed is also a little cockerl. Ill post pic of both. But I was wondering if Hoover Hatchery also supplied Family Farm and Feed, as they offer a 90% sexing guarantee, we have 6 chicks, and now 2 are rooster, that doesn't doesn't sound like 90% to me!

I don't know which hatchery supplies that store, but you could telephone the store and ask.

The problem is not usually the hatchery's fault. What usually seems to happen, is that the store gets the chicks and labels mixed up. (There is no label on the chick itself to help you sort them out again!)

We found out that this particular store is supplied by townline, and they offer an 85% sexing accuracy guarentee. We bought 2 birds, one was a sex-link, the other a Jersey Giant, I don't know how many birds were mis-sexed, but we got 50/50😢 I hope he's not mean.
