    I looking forward to placing an order (probably through McMurray Hatchery in early 2009) for an assortment of chicks - but I just don't have room for 25, which is their minimum order. I really only want about 10 - 12 pullets of assorted breeds Is there anyone interested in splitting a batch with me? - If you are interested, we could work out the details to meet and share the batch.

    where in Maine? My pet chicken, you can order as little as 3 chicks but it will cost you extra.

    Why not just get the 25, raise them up to five months, pick the ones you like best and sell the rest as a starter flock to someone close by? I would bet a card at the local feed store or an ad in "Uncle Henry's" would find young hens a new home very quickly.

    If you don't have room for 25, pick up cornish x and send them out to be processed. You can put them in a tractor early with a heat light, or even no heat as they get to be a couple weeks old as long as they have a place to get out of the wind etc.
    It takes 8 weeks and its a great thing to experience if you can handle it!
    Good luck!
