Ok so I have a little "problem". I have two laying hens and they have been laying pretty well (averaging 12 a week) and I want more chickens (hehe chicken fever) I got the chickens I have from Tractor supply, but there is a minimum of 6 that you have to get. Normally, like last time, it would be fine, but this time I am wanting more of a variety (usually they just have one or 2 type of breed at a time.) And so that puts TSC out of the question. So ive been doing some research and ive looked EVERYWHERE online for the perfect hatchery, but I can't find one. They either have a minimum amount thats too high (15 or 25) or they cost too much 30-50$ shipping plus cost of chicks and I only want six or seven so that would be a waste. Ideal was the PERFECT site and so we were filling out our order but when we submitted it, it didn't work and so we tried a couple more times and it still didn't work (just went to home screen) and so the next day I went and filled out the order again and to my unlucky suprize the cuckoo marans were unavalible. The chickens I want are leghorns, marans, easter eggers, and wyandottes for: white, dark brown, and blue/green eggs. (and 1 or 2 for the coloring of them (wyandottes) ) I was willing to switch out the cuckoo marans for another dark brown laying breed but ALL of them were unavalible until may. Could you guys PLEASE give me suggestions on what to do?
- I need to get them before may because I don't want them to start laying in the winter but I need them after spring break because Im going on vacation.
