    I am finally getting chickens after much deliberating. The chicken coop I have is only for about 5 to (maybe) 7 full grown chickens. Sadly I can't find any hatcheries that sell such small orders. I was hoping there might be a few local hatcheries that I can pick-up an order from. I live in southern UT. I hope this particular post is helpful to many. Feel free to ask your own questions.

    Have you tried posting this on the "Where am I, where are you" Utah thread? Just thinking you would have a more specialized audience for your quest...

    I thought other people might have this same problem and would like to have a less busy, crowded thread to ask on.​

    You can buy small orders and they will sex them as well. If you end up with "accidental" roos, they will refund your money and send you free chickens. It's where I've gotten all my chickens and they have been great.

    Search for your local feed store close and you can buy young chicks for a bargain without the cost of shipping in a month or two.

    I got my flock by inquiring at the feed store. They gave me the name of a local woman. Drove to her place and did not like what I saw. Driving home, passed a sign and stopped to inquire. Bought 6 pullets almost ready to lay.

    Hi there, I live in So Utah also (cedar City) and if you are close, perhaps we could share an order in the Spring. Also, you can get them at IFA and Cal Ranch, but if you want soemthing unique or special, its better to order by mail. I have used Cackle and Healthy chickens and more in the past with good luck when I want somethi9ng unusual. You won't be sorry if you get chickens, they are so great and yes, addiciting!!!
