I just wanted to send out a feeler, to reassure myself and my boss. I'm ordering chicks for the camp I work at (I'm the nurse, but will hover and force the Nature Guy to take good care of them). At the end of camp, I'll then have about 15 birds of various breeds (more of the pretty/interesting ones rather than the mundane RRs & such) to find homes for -- we're planning to increase our flock some... but not that much. So, just out of curiosity, how many people out there would be likely to want to scope up some started (8 wk old)birds? Should I order females to increase the allure, or take my chances with straight run (part of the experience for the campers was hopefully to observe the developing sex characteristics/play "guess the breed" and "guess the gender")?
