Does anyone know of any hatcheries that don't have a minimum order?
The minimum order size is there for the protection and well being of the chicks during shipping.
The smallest minimum order size I've seen offered is through Meyer Hatchery. For a specified part of the year, you can order as few as 3 chicks. But you will pay a premium for the shipping.
Are you asking about eggs, chicks, pullets, or adult birds?
Metzer will ship as few as 2 ducklings.
I have seen hatcheries that ship solo birds if they are older, but no singletons as day-olds.
Hi there, welcome to BYC!
Most all have minimums that vary according to season.
My Pet Chicken and Meyers go as low as 3. I prefer Meyers... but MPC has a larger selection.
Adding your general location to your profile will help peeps make the best suggestions possible at a glance.
Cackle ships as few as 3 chicks also.
I'm looking for adult or pullet chickens. I live in Rhea County Tennessee.
Murray McMurray will ship single pullets.
So will Cackle.
Adult birds (including pullets) can be shipped singly. Meyer hatchery, and the others mentioned, all provide this service. Each hatchery has a decent selection of started pullets. It appears some need to be ordered in advance, some are ready to ship.
