Are you talking about in the spring? Because if you are, I've ordered tons of chicks in the mail. I have the best luck ordering from my state or a state adjoining mine.

I've ordered from Greenfire Farms which is in Florida. I'm glad I did, but over all the chicks had a rough long ride to Iowa and I did end up losing quite a few.

ive ordered from mypetchicken before .. its expensive to order chicks imo so you need a good reason to and mainly that would be if you want to be sure to get a solid breed thats not mixed .. good to start a backyard flock that way, theyre usually healthier and stronger than what your gonna find in the tub at the feed store .. after that though its definitely better to get an incubator to maintain the flock ..
