    i am looking into buying chickens and i was wondering if the best way to get them is order them and get them when they are a few days old or order eggs and hatch them. I want the chickens to be really domestic. Which is the best way?

    How far is that from hackettstown? I am hatching some chicks and maybe you would like to pick a few up in a couple weeks.

    It will be barred rocks, polish, millie fleur mixes and some ducks. Out off all the eggs I have hatched they are always tame and only had one aggressive rooster.

    Its ok. Have you tried tractor supply company in flanders or wantage? Also I heard mypetchicken.com lets you choose as many chickens as you like

    Jerseychick, I'm in Clinton and have chicks coming from Welp with some extras that my friend and I don't need. Black australorp, buff orps, sp. sussex, and I'm hoping to hatch some BLRW's by the end of the month. Let me know!
