So I am starting with chickens this year and trying to determine my options for obtaining them. I want laying hens, no roosters. I've found a few breeds I am interested in, plus I'd like to have one silkie, just because they are so cute. Would like to get six, and we want chicks. Been to tractor supply, seems they don't have much variety unless you custom order and their minimums are more than I need. Is there any other place anyone knows of close by where I can obtain sexed chicks? I don't mind having them shipped but can't really do an order of 15, unless I do that and just sell the extras? Suggestions??
