    Call the hatchery and do it by phone. It's the best way, IMO.

    Here is the number for my pet chicken 888-460-1529 (toll free), but have you looked on Meyers or other hatcheries as well or is the my pet chicken your preference?

    Most hatcheries have a fifteen chick minimum; I think that's the issue here. Otherwise, I'd go with Cackle, or maybe some hatchery within driving distance.

    With Meyers its only 15 min from Dec.- Mar. hatches then the min. drops to 3. Thats where I got my chicks from last year and they are going strong except for my 2 Australorps I lost to opossum

    Thank you everyone, I contacted mpc and they only send 9 chicks min. of bantums, to my zipcode year around. I only want 2 porcelin D'uccles, for pets, they are so cute. So I guess that is out of the question for me. Guess I won' t be getting my chickens.I'm sad.

    You really don't want only two birds; four to six is a much better number! If you get two, and one dies, your remaining bird will be miserable.
