...that I get pullets? I know, I know, age old question that I can only answer for myself, but here's how it stands. I'm about ready to order my chicks, and it's coming down to Ideal or My Pet Chicken. These are to be pets/backyard birds, and I can't have roosters. I definitely want silkies, among a few other breeds. So! I'm debating between these two orders: Ideal: 3 Blue silkies 2 Red silkies 1 White silkie 1 Partridge silkie 1 Blue cochin pullet 1 Buff brahma pullet 1 EE pullet 1 Silver Polish (ordering lots of silkies in hopes of getting at least some pullets, hah) Subtotal: $46.76 (Also, it says this, and I'm not sure it includes shipping, it's the birds, small order fee, quarter box fee, and air shipping, so it that the total or should I still anticipate ~30 more for shipping?) MPC: 4 Silkie pullets 1 Blue cochin pullet 1 EE pullet 1 Leghorn pullet 1 SL Polish pullet GRAND total: $89.95 (this includes shipping and such). So, my two questions: 1. is there still going to be a shipping charge not yet incurred on the Ideal order? If so, this might make my decision easier, because the price wouldn't be that much different xD. 2. if it were you, ordering some for pets, would the price difference be enough to persuade you to go with MPC? Thanks for any input or opinions, I'm getting antsy to order and I'm just not sure I could have the heart to give away the inevitable roos I'd get in the Ideal order if I'd already grown fond of them. Thanks!
