    I want 3 chicks from ideal Poultry but to reach the minimum I need 8 rare breed chicks.

    I am at 6 pullets who are 12 weeks old right now and I am getting a pair of 10 week old Amerucanas from Peachick and I am getting 3 delaware and 1 leghorn mix also 10 weeks old. so I think I will wait unless any body be intreseted in some extra barnlavender, lakelavender, chantalacer, wellsummer, marans, iowa blue, Buckeye, and buff brahm or 7 or more of more common breeds?

    Should I raise 8 and sell all the ones I dont want to keep and count on some one in Maryland wanting them?
    or should I wait untill some one wants to split an order so I can get my 2 or 3 chicks and they can take the rest?
