I have never ordered from a hatchery before and after doing some research I think Ideal would be the best for what I am looking for. Does anyone have much info on them? I hear there is no minimum number as long as there is a $25 purchase and that they will fill the box with males to keep them warm. I also wonder is I am looking for a few bantams like 3-4 would they mix them with the standard chickens? How is there quality and survivability?
