    Hello.

    I'm driving out to Meyer's Hatchery on May 12th or 13th provided I can get some Rhode Island Reds.

    I was thinking if anyone else wanted chicks I could pick them up, save shipping, split the gas, and not have to worry about minimum order requirements.

    E-mail me (please don't reply) if interested.

    And just in case you suspect this is a scam (especially since I don't have a history here), you don't have to pay me in advance- I'll cover it until we meet up (well, unless I get $1000 in orders... I'm a teacher, not a high-risk mortgage broker) [​IMG].

    Why am I doing this? Because I feel silly driving 90 miles round-trip for 3 chicks (I'm a beginner- that's all I want). Plus I want to get a feeder, waterer, etc. I'd feel better about getting more stuff for others.

    I live in Akron, right by the Rt. 8 / I-76 interchange. We can talk on the phone as well if you like. Heck, if you want to ride along that's no problem.


    Thanks!
    Brian

    just a suggestion mypetchicken does small orders if you wanted only a few. Good luck with getting your new chicks.

    And have you tried any local feed stores? RIR's are pretty common birds. 90 round trip is a long way to go for 3 hatchery quality birds.

    Wow... you guys are incredibly helpful to the new guy.

    I will definitely consider those options. Although I look forward to a nice drive now and then, and my car gets great mileage, I still like saving a few bucks.

    Cheers!

    Although I received a wonderful offer, I'm going to run out to the hatchery on MAY 27th to pick up my chicks. I need so many other supplies that it just makes sense.

    So, if anyone needs anything I'm heading out!

    Thanks!
