Hoover's Hatchery Choice Rare Chickens, 10 Count Baby Chicks is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rare chick mix All arrived alive 5 died within 12 hours but they r always good about replacing or refunding. The only thing I don't like is why they can't at least specify which breeds r in box most hatcheries don't but it would be excellent if one would for the mixes. Other wise I'm returning customer and will continue to purchase from them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Healthy Happy Chicks! I was worried about the amount of time the new littles were in the postal system, but they arrived in good shape and peeping like crazy. With a little bit of water (with added electrolytes) and some food, they perked up and after 2 days are doing fabulous. I'm guessing I have at least 5 different breeds and (as per usual) Hoover's threw in an extra (likely a roo). Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful assortment! Our 10 baby chicks arrived safely. We ordered them Aug 28th and due to Labor day weekend, we did not receive them until Sept 5th. They are now about a week and a half old, all happy, healthy, and thriving. Each bird has her own distinct personality. They worked out a pecking order over the first couple of days. Now they all get along very well. Some were very shy and flighty, and other breeds have been more confident and curious. At first they were all very skittish toward humans, but now they are all excited to see us and cheep when they hear us approach their brooder. We believe to have at least 7 breeds in our assortment. We will watch them mature to be sure, but so far it looks like we have a cuckoo marans, copper marans, blue andalusian or lavender orpington, mottled cochin, salmon favorolle and possibly 2 wheaten marans and 3 welsummers or possible olive egger? We do think that the beautiful blue andalusian may be a male, which would be devastating because we ordered all females and we cannot keep roosters where we live. If she ends up being a male we will have to rehome him. It is still super early though so we are crossing our fingers that she is a girl. We love all of them! They will be wonderful pet companions and egg providers for our small backyard homestead. We are first time chicken owners and we are hooked! Pictures are from our weekly weigh in where we look over each bird and document their weights and update their growth rates.

Will there be a packaging slip to explain what breeds where sent?

Asked by: MeMeli72
The packaging slip will not state the assortment but there is an ID my chick page that may be reviewed. Steps are being taken to identify by label in the future but it is a true assortment

Why does it say strait run if it gives the option of getting females, males or strait run? I would love this mix but I do not need any roosters!

Asked by: Bren1968
Thanks for the questions. For this assortment there are choices between females, males and straight run. You may choose females on the drop down box to get those instead of a straight run mix.

so what is the ratio because I'm not wanting a lot of roosters maybe 2 if that and hate to spend money on a guessing game 

Asked by: Michaelcar
The ratio cannot be determined because they are taken directly from hatch. It is best to order females only to ensure no roosters. We guarantee 90% accuracy in sexing when we do. The assortment will be various rares. Thank you for your interest

How do this work, because the reviews complain about only receiving 2 different breeds, I would like to see at least a guaranteed 3 different breeds for me to be willing to buy the variety.

Asked by: Junior1900
With every order we strive to provide at least 3 breeds for each assortment. If that did not happen we appreciate being aware and thank you for this comment. Please call 641-323-6100 to report such instances
