    My pet chicken and Meyer. It will cost extra.
    We looked at getting 4 pullet chicks this past spring from Meyer. It would have cost about $45, including shipping and Marek's vaccination.
    Compare this to 25 pullet chicks we got from McMurray, which cost us $85, including shipping and Marek's vaccination.

    I think there are some backyard chicken breeders from Alaska on BYC. You probably could contact one of them and maybe get 10 chicks.

    I have actually got birds locally,but i havent found anyone here raising Mottled D Uccles. Which is what im after.I have found someone to ship me eggs but chicks are always a better bet if you can get them.

    I only wanted 10-12 as well ........... ended up ordering 25 from Welp ( very satisfied!)


    My plans were to choose the best 12 to keep for layers and fry the rest ..................... now my wife has other ideas ....... 8^) ......... aint gonna be no fried chicken .................... just LOTS of eggs !!!!!



    LOL .............. 8^)
