    Hi --My hubby and I are looking for 4-5 easter egger chicks--preferably pullets, but not sure if they can be sexed early or not? We ordered 25 chicks from McMurray--an assortment--we're pleased to death with our babies--but were really hoping for some colored eggs [​IMG]!! Anyone around here in Ohio that has a few they'd like to sell--or does anyone know anywhere we could order just a few chicks to add to our flock? Thanks so much [​IMG]!! [​IMG]m--I appreciate your time [​IMG] --

    You can purchase as few as 3 EE's from Meyers in Ohio and Mt healthy sells them also. When I checked for chicks around my town I found several places that had them. Call your feed stores, they will have some. Tractor supply had 65 different breeds to chose from. They really should be easy to find. [​IMG]

    OH, when you order from Meyers or Mt healthy you can chose what sex you want them to be. I ordered 6 pullets and ended up with one rooster and 5 girls, so it works out pretty well. You can keep the rooster if you accidentally get one and use him to make more pretty colored egg layers.

    Great idea--Thanks [​IMG]!! I think I''ll check out Meyer's--it's not that far from me (like an hour??) -- Would be a fun field trip with the kids [​IMG] -- I wonder if I should call first--have you ordered as few as 3 form them? I know some places make you take 6---I don't know want that many--Unfortunately our local feed supply store we use to buy from closed [​IMG] -- and our TSC only had red sex-linked chicks this year [​IMG]-I ordered the "rainbow layer" assortment from McMurray--not so sure how rainbow-y our eggs will be--BUT we've got a really healthy little flock [​IMG] -- I just would really like some EE's [​IMG] -- Thanks for the suggestion [​IMG]!!

    Yes i would call Meyers first. They will give you a hatch date and you just go pick them up. I got my EE girls from meyers and am very pleased. They are really pretty and one even ended up a rumpless! They will sell as few as three so that makes it so nice for those who just want to add to their flock. Have a fun trip:)

    Hi there! My friend has EE chicks but they are not sexed. If Meyer is out you could try Eagles Nest! I went there and they have the cutest chicks!!! My friend ordered EE pullets to sell at our local feed store! I think she sold out. [​IMG] I am in Millersburg. [​IMG] Where are you?
