Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Friendly, Docile Birds If you like buff Orpingtons but prefer a more colorful bird or something different, these are for you. They are quiet, friendly and docile. Great foragers but are not inclined to wander far from their coop if allowed to free range.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rainbow day old chicks I ordered the 10 pack of Rainbow day old chicks. They arrived pretty quickly and they send 2 extra ones. All 12 were very healthy and alert at arrival. I gave them food and water as soon as I open their mail box. They are 1 week old now and they seriously have double their size. They are so beautiful, a lot of them have stripes like chipmunks. A couple lighter color and one darker brown. I have raised baby chicks now for quite a few year and never had such cuties. They are so quiet, and so friendly, that I am sure they are going to make gorgeous friendly hens. I would definitely purchase again. The only thing is I wish one could pick at least 2 breeds as a choice, but these little girls are going to be awesome, no 2 of them look exactly like the other. Very happy with the purchase and the price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dead Chicks We bought 40 chicks, 10 of the rainbows. When the chicks arrived, one of the rainbows was already dead. It’s been a week since we’ve had the chicks and 5 more rainbows have died. So if the ten we started with, as of a week later, only 4 are alive and none of the other breeds have died. Wouldn’t order again.

So if I buy sexed pullets and end up with half or more roosters is there a quarantee?

Asked by: Nicole c
95% is the guaranteed for sexing errors. Most genetics are sexed by color or wing so the accuracy rate is high. Never has there been experience of half roosters

In Billings Mt. we bought just 3 pullets, they are 5 weeks old & they appear to be growing spurs. So, if I have to slaughter all of them, then I was misled & the ratio you report is wrong. Do your rainbow hens have spurs at 5 weeks of age?

Asked by: jenny 55
Rainbows can have spurs so please let us know if the appear to have larger combs around 12 weeks. Chick purchased in the store would be from the displays and they would be able to help sort this out if they do appear to be males

You say 250 eggs per year. is that per chicken or is that for all 10 hens?

Asked by: Maetexas
Great question. That would be per hen as they grow into adulthood and reach maturity for laying

Do they lay through the winter or slow down?

Asked by: Noelle39
All chickens will lay during the winter but based on extremes may lay a little slower. Rainbows have the aptitude to lay better in extreme conditions of hot or cold based on their genetics

Can you mix and match as long as there are 10 total?

Asked by: Barbarabes
There is not currently the ability to mix and match for each selection. There are various assortment selections to choose from if you do not want the same breed for all ten chicks

Will these do well in south Texas heat?

Asked by: DKST
Good question. Yes, they do well in the southern heat as they originate genetics from the south and are bred to be hardy to the heat. The are excellent foragers as well
