I've heard two different opinions at work from former chicken owners. One was that its easier to keep a larger number of chicks alive and not much more work. The other was that chicks are so messy you have to change all their bedding every day or you'll about die from the smell and more chicks make a lot more poop. I'm ordering some chicks from Meyer, but I'd rather pay for chicks instead of shipping. It being cheaper to order 15 chicks then just 8. I was thinking I could raise 15 and sell the extras. Or just sell the extra chicks?
