I don't know why I didn't think of this. I was reading a post from a fellow BYC 'r in NH and she had a good point. You can special order whatever chicks you want in the smaller quantities at your local grain store and not even have to pay the shipping! I called my local grain/hardware store in Nottingham and they order from Murray McMurray where I had just placed my order. They told me they would get me whatever I wanted for the delivery day I wanted. I called the hatchery and cancelled my order I had placed which is really easy considering they do not charge your card until the week before they ship the chicks anyway. No mad rush to the PO and I get what I want, the amount I need, on the day I pick.
