We ordered a small coop that holds four chickens max according to it's description, but I want to keep three, so they will have some room to groove, and hopefully be happy. I read (I think on here somewhere) TSC sells them in batches of 6+ only. I understand why, and that's fine. We can definitely buy and brood 6 babies. I just don't have anyplace to keep them when grown. I wish I would have known about the 6 thing before buying the small coop. I feel like such an idiot. What would you do with the "spares"? I wish I knew of someplace to buy just 3 or 4. I am in NY between Buffalo and Rochester. I don't know of anyplace other than TSC to get chicks, or of any way to even give them away if we do have the spares. There is a chance one of our neighbors might want them. But we didn't ask yet. Would you go ahead with the 6 if you didn't have homes for two or three lined up? Not sure what to do. We already spent about $300 on chicken stuff. I am hoping to maybe find someone shopping in the store who would split a box of 6, but then part of me wants to keep them till they get bigger in case we get a rooster by accident. What would you guys do in my shoes?
