    I'm wondering if any of the hatcheries will ship faster so less die.

    I don't know if it is standard or not, but Meyer shipped my small order express instead of Priority. Shipping is more expensive this way but for me it was well worth it.

    Best to get them from local breeders. Check out 4H poultry leaders I'n your area. They could give you the info if they have local breeders. That is why there is a minimum order at hatcheries of 25 chicks. To maintain heat so less do die. Most reputable breeders will not ship just a few chicks, because mortality rates go up with less than 25 chicks
