Chicks in Memphis TN?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I am starting with chickens this year and trying to determine my options for obtaining them. I want laying hens, no roosters. I've found a few breeds I am interested in, plus I'd like to have one silkie, just because they are so cute. Would like to get six, and we want chicks. Been to tractor supply, seems they don't have much variety unless you custom order and their minimums are more than I need. Is there any other place anyone knows of close by where I can obtain sexed chicks? I don't mind having them shipped but can't really do an order of 15, unless I do that and just sell the extras? Suggestions??

You will have so much fun with them!! Most websites min. order is more in the winter time and will go back to the usual around the end of March.  I got my chicks from mypetchicken this last October, and for my area code the min order was 7, but they go down to 3 in some areas!.  They shipped them good, and speedy, and all were the correct gender and breed. However, one of my chickens had a deformity, but they did give us a full refund.  But, the poor little thing just couldn't hold on any longer:((( That being said, I would definitely order from them again because her deformity didn't appear till she was 2 weeks, so there was no way of them knowing that when they shipped her off.
