The chicks that we purchase at hatcheries are guaranteed pre-sexed pullets (females) from hatcheries, Most hatcheries are 90% accurate but sometimes there are a few roosters chicks in the flocks.
Understand that when buying young poultry getting a rooster chick happens with A-L-L companies sometimes! If you purchase "chicks" usually 8 weeks or younger, in many places including here, there is a chance you may get a rooster!
1) We do NOT give refunds if you get a rooster!
2) We do NOT give you a hen for a rooster.
(Neither does any other company!)
90% females is what we get on hatch day when chicks are shipped to us.
