Good afternoon all. I have been thinking of getting some chickens for about a year and a half now. My wife is on a new diet and is finally supportive of having chickens mostly due to being free range and knowing exactly how the eggs are treated. I placed my first order with Idel Poultry this afternoon and they immediately called me to inform me that the number of chickens I ordered was too low and that I would either have to insure the order or have them pack in random male chicks to take up the space. I only want about 4 chicks to start with and certainly do not want them to be harmed in shipment but cannot house the additional chicks nor do I want roosters. Is there a subforum I missed or some method to find people near me wanting to order chicks to split the cost? The shipment will not go out until September 7th so I could call and change or cancel my order if need be but I thought I would try this first. If anyone is interested I live in Murfreesboro, TN Thanks!
