    Hi! I am wondering if there is a poultry hatchery where I can get at least 2-3 chicks in one shipment/order because everywhere I check they have a minimum order of 25 chicks....
    And I would only be looking for one male (R.I.P Mr rooster) and maybe 1-2 more females.

    Thanks,Collin

    Check out mypetchicken.com or nature's hatchery...both will do small orders (although they may be out of a lot at the moment...till spring)...

    I ordered my chicks last August from MPC, and they all arrived healthy, no losses. I did have 1 roo, but so far he has behaved himself!
    They are beautiful..(at least in my eyes!)

    I also ordered all females. I did order 24, so I think they did pretty good on sexing them

    Good luck!

    Or you could try the WTB section of BYC to see if anyone close to you is looking to rehome chickens.

    Ideal has some birds for .99 this week with a minimum of 25. It would probably be cheaper to get the 25 and sell or give away the extras??
