    Look, I swear I'm not going to actually BUY any chicks, I just want to LOOK at some chicks. No, seriously!!! [​IMG]
    So what's the best site for "just looking", as in- best variety of different cute chickies to admire and NOT ORDER?
    Totally not going to order any. None. At all.

    Meyers or Murray McMurray for window shopping IMO.

    If you aren't going to order 25 or more then the shipping costs will usually prevent you from ordering. LOL!

    I like Meyer because they have pictures of chickens, chicks, and eggs where McMurray has paintings or drawings. If you are trying to identify a chick, Ideal Poultry has good pictures. McMurray has videos on youtube of baby chicks which help in identification, too. Google is good for pics if you want to check out a certain breed.

    Sure you're not going to order, just keep telling yourself that and maybe it'll come true. [​IMG]
