    I wish there were more places that sold single or pairs of hens or pullets. I'm trying to get started in Missouri but everyone wants you to buy like 6 minimum to place orders.

    Cackle Hatchery is in Missouri and that's who I have gotten chicks from. They offer a small package of 2 pullets and 1 cockerel although it is a little more expensive. Maybe you could go in on an order with someone?

    I will look them up and see if there's a package I can possibly get from them. I don't mind paying a little more especially for good birds.

    [​IMG]Welcome from Kansas! [​IMG]So happy you joined!
    I feel for you. The reason they have ruled that you have to buy in groups of 6 is actually to limit the occurrence of backyard chickens. You can always hatch your own!
