Hatchery Choice Rare Chickens, Sold in Quantities of 10 is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cute, but no variety We got these earlier this week. They shipped 12 instead of 10, which was nice, but all of the chicks are the same breed. Called to ask and they said it was hatchery choice. The description has now removed the word "Assortment".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased All chicks looked healthy but the only complaint I have is not knowing what breeds I got. Most chicks look similar so I cannot tell. Other than that very good service, shipping was timely, chicks were healthy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from hatchery choice rare chickens One of the ten arrived dead, the others are healthy. No indication what breed they are, and they all appear to be the same breed

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, not great Purchased 20 birds, received 22 birds promptly. Weather was mild for shipping. 2 birds died within a day, 2 more died the following day... Remaining 18 look healthy. Not a big assortment, look to be black and cuckoo marans. Overall somewhat satisfied I guess

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
