    I am wanting to add 2-3 baby chicks to my collection. Younger the better and I will drive a few hours to get them. I'm in Henderson, TX. I would even take fertilized eggs. I want to stick with RIR's.

    Quote:Thanks Kari! I appreciate the offer but I'm hoping to find some a little closer. Ideal is only a few hours and not too much of a detour from my deer lease so it's looking pretty good. I'm trying to skip the shipping part. I hate having live animals shipped.

    Hey, another Texan! I don't have any RIR but am wondering where in TX you are if Ideal is only 180 miles? It sounds like you might be close to me.... [​IMG]

    How far from Ponder, Tx? I might be hatching some soon. Depends if the mother continues to set.

    I candled the eggs and she seems to have collected all the infertile ones. I'm surprised the way my rooster gets around i didn't think it was possible. No chicks sorry.[​IMG]
