order chicks from 4 states away? I could order from one state over, but they don't have what I want. I am going to be ordering 30+ chicks, so they should have plenty of body warmth. Also I am waiting until spring (late March- early April) to order, so the weather will be a lot warmer. I really want 25 pullets from the Plymouth Rock Asst. from Ideal, about a dozen cockerels of a dual-purposed breed for meat, and about a dozen bantam cochins or OEGB (haven't decided yet, I want good broodies, but not silkies) Should I settle for less than I want and go with the other hatchery that is closer? I would rather have healthy chicks that weren't exactly what I wanted than have a bunch of sick or dead chicks that were the breeds and varieties that I wanted.
