    Why not try to buy eggs and hatch out a brood of kids?

    I have only used Cackle Hatchery, but I am pleased with them. The only catch is you have to order at least 5 of any straight run or hen breed. You can order 1 or 2 roosters to go with the hens. Shipping to my house was about $30 for 15 chicks. Also they will send baby turkeys and chicks together to meet the minimum. Prices are reasonable (depends on breed, but usually $11--$15 for a set of 5).

    All my chicks were healthy.
