Thank you to those who responed to my earlier thread about Buff Orpingtons. Feeling more comfortable that they can co-exist with Barred Rocks okay, I am eager to order half a dozen or so of the BO's. The bad news: I can't order any BO's from my local feed stores, and most online hatcheries want a minimum order of 25 chicks. The good news: I see that Cackle Hatchery sells BO's an has a minimum chick order of 15. This is more than I need, but tempting nontheless. I am thinking of ordering through Cackle, assuming that I may lose some and can maybe give some away. But does anyone have advice for me about this? Should most of the 15 chicks survive the trip form MO to New Hampshire? Is Cackle a good company to deal with?
