    I have looked on many hatchery sites and I do not want to buy 25 chicks. That seems to be the minimum order on most of the sites.
    I am looking for 3 buff orpington hens and a light brahma hen. If anyone knows of anyone selling any chicks or hens please let me know! Thanks bunches!

    I also have a Wellsummer Rooster that we need to rehome he is 16 weeks old!

    I suppose you've looked at My Pet Chicken. They have a minimum order of 3.

    My pet chicken only lets you order 3 if you are near a big city. I am not, so I found a nearby BYC buddy to split an order with me- I want 10, my co worker wants 5, she wants 10, it adds up fine!

    Where are you located? I have chicks pretty much year round if you're nearby for pickup for small orders. I'm in eastern PA.

    Ideal doesn't have a minimum either, but they will charge $7 for the small order. They send extra males for warmth. I ordered 4 ducks on my first order. I was happy with them and ordered 14 chicks my next order. I have been very happy with what I got. I have a few pictures posted under the thread requesting pictures from Ideal if you would like to look at some of the quality you can expect.
