We're on the other side of the state, I think. I'm about 15 minutes from Reyvaughn and I saw how far you are in an earlier post, or I'd say you got a deal.

Edit to laugh at the fact that SS just proved my point! See? Lots of folks split meat hatchery orders to get the better deals!
Neighbors are pretty much out, they're either family (and already invested in the flock) or complain about the roos already within ear shot or refuse to get their own. We're pretty spread out where I live, so I don't know why they complain so much. I personally enjoy watching the sun come up with a cup of joe and hearing the boys ( each about a mile away in multiple directions). My interactions with some neighbors will be be further diminished if I have any roos in my flock, but then again I'm not worried as we're zoned for all livestock and I don't like them much anyway *insert smirk, rubbing of hands, a low evil laugh.* I think there may be some other people on here that are near enough that meeting up to split the chicks shouldn't be a problem.
