    I was curious if it would be better to order chickens from Welps? Never had any DQs out of our Cornish Rocks and was curious if the same goes for all other breeds? Biggest thing is if I buy from a breeder most of the time I have to buy 25+ of the same breed and have expensive shipping. With Welps a hop skip and a jump down the road it's not hard to pick them up and I can get multipule breeds.

    I'm thinking about getting the following to start my Flock...

    5x Birchen Cochin Bantam
    5x Buff Brahma Bantam
    Already bought a show Buff Cochin Bantam Cockeral and I'm looking into getting 5 more.
    5x Black Tailed White Japanese Bantam
    5x Silver Sebright Bantam

    Well I don't know anything about Welps. But everything but the shipping being equal, I will always take my own hop, skip and a jump over anyone else's shipping and handling.
