    If you order chicks, you'd have to pick them up from the post office.

    I asked my foster parents about that, they don’t mind going there since it’s really close and the chicks are live animals in a box waiting for me, but the things on cregslist are “to far to go” or “don’t feel like going anywhere today” is what they tell me

    Hmmm... If there's a free coop or something close by, maybe you could email the sellers and ask them if they could drop it off? No idea if this would actually work but it might be worth a shot...

    Bantams are small and pretty easy to take care of. I have some. I agree with The Fowl Guy, you can get a mowing job, or something like that. Maybe your parents can take you to a small animal auction. They probably have supplies there for cheap. I wouldn't recommend getting chickens there. Some of them might have something wrong with them. If you do get supplies there, make sure you wash them really good. I hope you get what you want. If you want some ideas about what kind of Bantams to get, may I suggest Old English. They lay a lot of eggs, they can handle the winter, but some might lose a piece of their comb/waddle due to frostbite. They good setters and really good moms. You can go to Cackle Hatchery.com and check their Old English out. I really wanted the Ginger Reds. They are beautiful. :love Hope you get them. :thumbsup

    I had some in the past, and loved them, a self-blue hen, a bb red hen, and a silver duckwing roo

    I like my D'Uccles. Friendly and low maintainance. Also generally more quiet than most breeds.
