I called Ideal today and spoke to their customer service to place my order for chicks to be shipped on the 25th of February. I ordered 15 of them to find out that they would put 5-8 cockerels in the order for warmth. As I really don't need roosters, after my experience with my neighbors it was suggested to find people in the area to add to my order. I am located in SWNH, about 25 minutes from Keene and Brattleboro - if anyone would be interested in adding 5-8 birds to my order that would be fabulous. The shipping costs could be split based upon the # of birds and I have asked them to mark my breeds. If I get desperate maybe I will order some more birds hoping to sell them after they start growing up as I really don't need more birds. Thanks and I hope that this post is appropriate. I am on BYC and I can't stop......my neighbor just stopped over and dropped of Living With Chickens...funny huh.
