So where do your get your chickens? Do they have a minimum order? I am looking for 2 chicks to put under my broody who is sitting on duds. Most places have high minimums and I already have 14 chicks, can't get too many more !
I got my chicks from Ideal and a few from Tractor Supply 'cause I couldn't resist. mypetchicken.com lets you order just a few, but the shipping costs are much higher. I have never ordered from them though. In the future I'd like to order eggs and incubate!
I've gotten them from all over. Last year a few times I sold a couple to people to slip under broodies and as brooder buddies for single chicks when the feed stores were out, but these people contacted me and asked if I had anything vs me advertising. I see people selling chicks on CL and such for $1-$2 all the time.
No Luck at Gooches? There is an ad on CL and this one has many breeds hatching so you could get day olds from her. This is the link http://nh.craigslist.org/grd/2257130627.html and she is right in Barrington which I think is close to you. Good Luck!!
