    What are the minimum shipping amounts for juvenile chickens in McMurray's? I think I've looked everywhere on that site. [​IMG] Thank you!

    If you're looking for chicks, MPC does a great job of small groups of chicks. I just need . . . those juveniles! [​IMG] Because I want to raise chickens . . . only I don't think I have the time to attend to baby chicks, however cute and fluffy-like they are.

    Quote:Are you talking about their Started Pullets? They are 12.95 each and then
    there is a shipping and boxing cost for each Pullet ordered.
    According to their catalog 1 bird = 61.20 shipping/boxing
    2 = 78.30
    3 = 89.50
    4 = 101.40
    They are 17 week old females and they have 3 different breeds.
    Red Star, Black Star and Pearl-Whites.
    Hope that helps,
    Sharon

    Meyer Hatchery also sells the started pullets -- and is more than likely McMurray's source for them. The shipping costs are going to be similar, but the cost per bird at Meyer is roughly 1/2 that of McMurray.

    PUL Pullorum Certificate (Standard Shipping)
    $1.00 1 $1.00
    --------------
    SubTotal
    $260.00
    Shipping $405.80
    Total
    $665.80


    Here is the answer- OMG. I am in Nebraska, right NEXT to IOWA. So I have to guess this IS a drop ship from somewhere far far away

    I did NOT complete the order, lol $405 for shipping HAHAHAHAAHA [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
