    Just placed an order for 12 chicks for my San Francisco backyard coop! I can't wait for them to arrive early April.

    I ordered:

    1 Barred Plymouth Rock
    2 White Plymouth Rock (I want to name one Camilla after Gonzo's chicken.)
    2 Australorp
    2 Silver Laced Wyandotte
    2 Easter Egger
    1 Silver Cuckoo Marans
    2 Blue Andalusian (Hope at least one is true blue.)

    I will be sure to blow up this forum with updates as the little guys mature. [​IMG]

    Mypetchicken.com I read some good reviews and I can't order from farms with 25+ minimum orders. That's way too many for my house/backyard (and city laws)

    Next time you might consider Ideal hatchery in Texas. They have a very small shipping charge if your bird order totals $25. You can also order as few birds as you like.

    I ordered the Large Fowl Layer's Special (25 pullets of various breeds, their choice) from MPC last year and was very happy with the chicks. It was the first time I had that many chicks at once, but it was still wonderful. The cost was $49.95 for 25 chicks, SHIPPING INCLUDED. Great special!

    I also like that MPC will sex bantam breeds, which none of the other hatcheries will do.
