We originally ordered chicks from Meyer, but canceled when we thought we wouldn't be ready for them in time. Well, I figured I would be able to get some between Country Max and TSC..... I didn't realize there's a NY state imposed 6 bird minimum for every purchase! Back to the drawing board.... I'll probably order again even though it kills me to pay shipping. I don't think there are any 4-H meetups or livestock auctions near me.... and no postings on CL... I ALMOST had chickens yesterday!
