    I'm thinking of getting the Colored Range Chicks. If you get 100+ they are $1 ea. Hopefully I can piggy back someones order.

    So you want 50!!![​IMG]

    I take it that you ate the ones you had from last year???
     
  3. Yup, ate them and found a processor to do my future ones as well...

    Let me think about going halfies with ya... When are you looking to order them?


    Ooo I just re-read that... I think I read it wrong. Are you looking to take 50 yourself?

    I'm selling some this year so all 50 aren't for my family.

    Moyers (http://www.moyerschicks.com/MC-Web/DesktopDefault.aspx has them for $1.10 each for straight run at that quantity. That is the cheapest I found, although I didn't look that much. I liked the fact they are located in PA so I should get them much sooner than some other hatcheries.

    I just looked at townline and they are actually $73 for 50 of the broilers, which is disappointing, it would of been nice if they were only $1 each.

    This hatchery is the cheapest.


    www.centralhatchery.com

    This is if you order 100 I'm sure they would work with you if you only wanted 50.

    $65.00 / 100

    I need some Cornish Asap. I'd be willing to go in with you on any quantity.
    I only want 20 or so but I've got others that will take some.

    I could meet up with you somewhere in between or just take a cruise out
    to RI. It's close for me. Heck, anything under 2 hours is a Sunday cruise.
