    Ive already picked out what breeds I want,but I can't find a hatchery that sells all the breeds I want.
    Here are the breeds and how many.
    Delaware-3 hens
    Malay-2 hens
    GP(Golden Penciled) Hamburg-2 hens
    Easter Egger-3 hens


    Does anyone know of any GOOD hatcheries that sells ALL of these breeds?? And that there isnt a minimum of like 15 chicks?
    Thank you!!

    NOTE:: I'd like to order the chicks for March 25th or April 1st AT THE LATEST

    The chick minimum is for body heat. If you do less then 25 chicks in a box you are likely to get dead chicks. Dead chicks =bad.

    They have all of those breeds and only require a $25 minimum. HOWEVER, they will include male chicks for warmth if you order less than a full box. There is really no way around it. I'm sure you could sell or give away the males easily enough, though.

    However, they are all sold out til May-June. This is a bad time of year to order chicks since most seem to sell out in January before restocking again for the late spring/summer.
