    Are there any good hatcheries in Arkansas that have a low minimum order?

    The closest I could find was Cackle up in Missouri.

    I ended up ordering from Ideal because of USPS issues. The first hatchery I ordered from was in Iowa, so they went throught Memphis. According to the USPS there is a trucking issue out of Memphis that has not been fixed going to Arkansas. All 50 chicks arrived DOA as they took 6 days to get to Atkins, AR. from Iowa. The 50 from Ideal got here within 2.5 days and I lost 12 (it was over 95 degrees that Thursday) They sent me the 12 replacements, got here today, all thriving. Maybe the bigger box was handled roughly? Maybe call USPS and find out where the transfer is from Missouri?
