Hi friends, I'm a newbie and after doing all of my research, was finally ready to order our chickies. When I went to the websites of the hatcheries to place my order, it turns out everything I wanted is unavailable or out of stock!! How frustrating! I feel like something is telling me I shouldn't be getting into this! What happens now? Do I have to resort to whatever the local farmers co-op carries in a month or two, when their chicks arrive? Do I wait until next year to get the breeds I want? Thanks!
