Can I buy this from an online hatchery???

    [​IMG] I was SO frustrated last week to find that my Silver Sebright "hen" is actually a roo! We were so sure that he was a hen, but since last week he's grown a BIG red comb! It's extremely frustrating, he's also very small on top of it, I'm guessing he's a runt as well. [​IMG]

    My question is: Is there an online hatchery out there that will allow me to order one single Silver Sebright hen? Most places are straight run only and have a large number as their minimum order. I figured this is a lost cause, but if anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated!

    You could check the Buy Sell Trade section here on BYC. I'm sure someone might be able to help you there. I doubt you'll be able to buy one hen from a hatchery.

    Good luck!!

    You could try My Pet Chicken.... I dont know about one chick but you can order as small as 3 at a time and they are sexed. You could order 3 and sell the other 2.

    You can order from Ideal but not just one chick it has to be a minimum order of $25 i think. My pet chicken i think is 3 for a minimum order but they don't have sebrights. Ideal does
    www.idealpoultry.com otherwise i don't know of ANY hatcheries that sell single chicks. Or like sterlingacres said the buy/sell/trade section on here [​IMG]
