I'd like to add 6 chicks from this spring and retire my 2 year olds. Murray McMurray seems like it has a good reputation - but I need to get 25 chicks. Around Atlanta - the only place i'm aware of that sells live chicks is tractor supply - with them, I have an hour drive and its a crap shoot as to whether you get there when they have chicks as well as whether they will have the breeds you want.
Has anyone ordered 25 (to get the cheap shipping) and sold off the birds as 12 to 16 week pullets? Any success with this? Is it worth the hassle?
I'd love to hear others experiences.
