    Is anyone looking for Buff Orpington Pullets. My local hatchery sells in bulk and I do not have room for a min order. If anyone has room for 2-3 let me know. Free if picked up, I am in Lancaster, MA 01523.

    After all the hassle you went thru to find them, would you be willing to ship to FL?

    If you would be willing to pay for shipping I wouldn't mind it. I really have no idea of what to ship them in and where to get the materials, and I would feel very poorly if one of the chicks did not make the journey.

    Did you find a home for them in Hartford? If not, I would be willing to pay the shipping. I'm in the same situation that you are with ordering from a hatchery, it is so expensive just to order a couple chicks, and I can't find the breeds I want here locally. Only RIR's. Just PM me.

    Hatcheries ship day-olds because they can survive on the yolk in their stomach for 48 hours without needing to eat or drink. After the first 48 hours they will need a constant supply of food and water, and will not survive the trip without. Once they are a older they can, but please bear this in mind.
