    Chick days at Tractor Supply is coming up. I was thinking about getting some chicks to raise and add to my flock. Does anyone know what the minimum amount of chicks you have to buy is? Thanks for any help.

    25 is the minimum for a special order.

    If you go to the store and just pick from what they have, it's usually 6 (if there's a minimum at all).

    I wonder if you placed a post to split the amount of chicks you recieve, but show the store you ordered "six".
