    I've ordered from mypetchicken before and where we live the minimum is 6. There was a natures hatchery or something like that, that had a small minimum order but their website won't come up

    Chickensforbackyards.com has a minimum of either 3 or 4 and they pack very well. The heat packs were still warm when I got my four.
