    I've got the empty brooder blues.... I need to fill it up again. SOOOOOO. I will be ordering from Ideal Hatchery since they are having a sale on some chicks. 99 cents for st. run and 1.30 for sexed hens.... decisions decisions!!!

    ahhaha

    who else is ordering?

    I've been wanting to add a few more hens. (like I need them...) but I need to find somewhere that has a lower min. order amount. McMurrary has a Min of 25! Ten would be good for me, but I doubt I can find a hatchery that'll do that and not charge me an arm & leg.

    MPC sells as few as 3 and there shipping is around $30.

    I was just telling DD last night that we need to get our order in. She wants to try banties this year since we got one (roo) from a feed store last spring. She fell in love with him/breed. We want hens though. I may get some more standards. I don't need 25 either so I'm hoping to find someone to split the order with me. Or just have to build another coop. Hhmmmmmm..............

    I really appreciate you feeding my addiction! [​IMG] It is tempting but I want a closer hatchery. I will pay a little more to get hens only.
