    I have been web searching for hours. I'm starting to get frustrated. I want egg layers and I want 3-4 DIFFERENT chicks. My preferences are buff and barred feathers (assortment) and it would be great if I could get a silkie too.

    Mypetchicken.com lets you calculate your minimum order (mine for Waynesboro PA was either 4 LF, 6 Bantams OR 5 LF/Bantam mix) and you can mix and match your orders!

    Thanks! I think I've read that mypetchicken gets their chicks from Meyer. I'd like to use Meyer, but they currently aren't selling Silkies. [​IMG]

    I actually like going through MPC. They have a great customer service.

    You might try Estes Hatchery in Mo. They will ship smaller lots. We got our silkie from there. I would suggest calling them and seeing if they are currently shipping.

    There is a member on here (rockinpaints) that has a hatchery called the Fancy Chick. I have ordered from her a couple of times and her minimum order is 5. You might want to check with her. She has nice stock.
