I want to get about 4-5 chicks from Meyer Hatchery in the spring/summer IF I can get a coup and run built before then. I don't want to order now and later not be ready. I'd like it to happen this year, but it might not. I've noticed looking at their website though, that alot of the dates they'll have chicks are no longer available. This worried me that if I can get them this year, they'll have run out or I'll have to get chicks in the fall, which I'd rather not. What has been your experience? Breeds I'm thinking of are Australorp, Orpington, Sussex, Wyandotte.. The Blue Orpingtons look cool, but it says none available at this time and to check back, wonder if they'll get any this year? Also if you do order early, do they charge you right away or not until they ship?
