    Hello! We are an hour and 45 minutes away. Not too far. I might be interested in some meat chickens. How many were you planning on getting? Where are you getting them? And when are you planning on getting them? Sorry about all the questions! Just let me know on how many your getting and well figure out something! I cant get too many cause I would have to build a larger coop than what I have. Thanks!

    HI

    the place i was planning on is in OH,
    well i had the both place wrote down and now i cant find them.
    i well do a search again.

    were looking at getting about 16 to 20.

    with in the next couple weeks we plan on getting them.

    I know some place has a min of 25 order, or you get charged more pre bird and extra shipping.

    Hi again. I was thinking about getting about no more than 5 for myself. Do you know of a place that has a lower minimal order? I might be able to get some from my feed store down the road from me. I will check there and let you know what he says. They have a minimal order of 6 I think.
