    You can't mail chicks in that few of numbers... and shipping live birds is extremely costly. Try a bird swap... I went to one in Charlotte today and they had both of those breeds and very inexpensively priced.

    i am hoping from private individules that got them and are willing to part with one. and with it being warm it shouldn't be a problem. i have bought at both at auctions and from people who hatched at home and have terrible luck. thats why i am hoping that someone who ordered them will part with one. if they live close to me then that would be great.

    A week old chick would not survive a 2-3 day mailing via priority and possibly not even overnight express. Plus, shipping would be costly for you.

    I think they mean have YOU given free livestock to anyone AND paid to ship it to them. Asking for free chicks is one thing but if you want them shipped ( which is very costly ) you should at least offer to pay shipping.
