Last fall I made up an order for ten chicks, several breeds, to arrive in the spring. Unfortunetly one breed wanted wasn't available until July so I split my order into two. Six to arrive in April. 4 in July (four was the minimum order they would ship.) Now I'm wondering for the sake of integrating into my existing flock would it be easier to have one order in April and the second in July? If combining I would probably have to make substitutions on at least one July breed. Just wondering how difficult combining with my existing flock will be. I couldn't combine for a July shipping order because many of the April birds are sold out for the year. I'm in a quandry over what to do. Leave as two orders or combine for one April shipping? Any advice? If this comes through twice I apologize. I was distracted while writing the first time, made a glitch, and not sure if I sent it.
