    Ok this whole chick thing is hitting me like a freight train! Now I am thinking of getting Bantams to keep more as pets and let my others deal with the egg laying. If it weren't for the fact that from mypetchicken.com my minimum order is 7 for banty chicks I would have an invoice from mypetchicken.com in my inbox! HELP [​IMG]

    *Edited to fix smilie.

    There is no cure for this addiction. Besides, bantams count as only half a regular chicken so you could add some bantams to your flock! I hatched out some silkies for pets and the little fuzzy butts are two weeks old and so darn cute! Look:

    How cute is this:

    Quote:Unfortunately I think you did! Does anyone know of a place that has low minimum orders like mypetchicken.com that sells sexed Blue Silky Bantams? I know I want them but are hesitating on getting them since I want 3 not 7 lol. [​IMG]
