The special assorted bargain is st run chicks (meaning they are not sexed). This package can include any of the breeds we hatch excluding bantams. Some of the rare breeds may not do as well in colder climates. I would suggest the heavy assorted st run or our brown egg layer (females). They tend to be more hardy for cold climates. We offer 2 vaccinations before the chicks are shipped out.

Here are some of the rare breeds we offer. https://www.mcmurrayhatchery.com/rare_and_unusual_breeds.html
Are these all hens?
Our Special Assorted Bargain is a Straight Run. This is a mix of males and females that are not sexed.
at what age ducks start laying eggs
They will start laying at 6-8 months depending on the time of year.
Love assortments!.... but do you offer an assortment of cold hardy souls? I'm new to chicks, and don't want to stack the deck against my new babies by getting something that had a slim chance to begin with (because of the cold). I live in Alaska.
We have the Heavy Assorted which is st run, or the Brown Egg Layers all females. The heavy breeds tend to me more hardy and do well in colder climates.
what is the shipping on them
Shipping depends on how many you choose to order and as to what state you are in.
Do you put bantams with this bargain?
The Special Assorted Bargain is standard breed chickens ....no bantam chicks.
what does Straight Run mean
Straight run means "as hatched - unsexed". The chicks are not examined by our professional sexers to determine if they are males or females.
This is my first time ordering chicks. I'm nervous I won't be able to take care of them the way they deserve. Is there a way to return them or to give them to someone else who can take care of them if it gets too overwhelming?
Sorry there is not a return policy on the baby chicks. If you do feel overwhelmed you would need to find someone locally that could take them off your hands.
When is the best time to order the assorted bargain for spring delivery
You may order right after the first of the year if you would like. Hope to hear from you then!
Great assortmentI ordered 50 of these chicks last fall. I ended up with red sex links, black sex links, barred rocks, white rocks, white wyadottes, RIR, and a few hamburgs. Excellent variety. More females then males. I would recommend these as good dual purpose birds. Cockerals tasted great with a good butcher weight at 4 months and the hens are now starting to lay!
Lots of Roostersgot 15 and 9 were roosters. good deal for meat but not for eggs.
