    less risk with the chicks, since the seller has already culled? you wouldn't lose as many shipped chicks, as you would eggs, so the actual price per unit should remain close to the original.

    but then on hatching shipped eggs, you will have less hatch than what has been shipped, so the actual price per unit goes up.

    I know chicken math refers to always getting more chickens than planned, but it sounds like shipped chicks would be the way to go, over shipped eggs?

    I can't get a bator and my mom prefers broodies, my dad on the other hand…He'd prefer a bator and not a hen.[​IMG]

    All depends on who you are ordering from. You really have to research their stock and their reputation. If I was going for SQ birds, I'd pay through the nose for a trio of adult stock from a reputable breeder, then hatch my own chicks.

    I like to hatch, can't stand the thought of chicks in a box going throu PO handling, so I'll keep ordering shipped eggs until I have enough good adults to hatch from.

    All depends on your goals and how much time and money you have to get there.
