    Isn't there a hatchery that will sell me 2 chicks and will let me pick the gender? I need 2 bantam hens and all the hatcheries say you have to buy a minimum of 25 chicks and they are straight run only! I live in the city so I can't have that many and can't afford that many. I tried looking for hatcheries in my state(ohio) or breeders or something but we have to drive for about 200 miles to get to one! Help!

    [​IMG] Try your local feed stores. That is where we buy our small quantities.

    Local feed stores are probably your best bet. www.mypetchicken.com will ship in quantities as small as 3 -- not sure about just bantams though -- then it may be 5. Worth a look but you'll have to pay quite a bit for shipping vs. a feed store.
