    I just ordered 25 brown egg layers and received 31 chicks (including the free exotic, which looks to be an EE 'roo). They were healthy and active right out of the box...I've spent the past two days trying to keep up. :) They look like barred rocks and RIRs. Ordered from Murray McMurray and couldn't be happier.

    Good luck!

    "Assortment" is going to be pretty limited this time of year. Few breeds are being hatched right now.

    Sometimes specials are for a very limited time so your best bet is to go to all the different hatchery sites and look at what their current specials are and at what they are hatching right now.

    I bought 25 EEs in NOVEMBER from Strombergs hatchery. Not a single DOA considering they came from up north down here to KY

    Ideal is still doing their bantam assortments, but I don't how many breeds of bantams they hatch at this time of year.
