    I know alot of you ship eggs and are having a ton of good luck hatching them, but was also wondering who is willing to ship little babies?
    I am looking to add to my flock this spring and are wanting to add some banty's ( any breed is fine ) and something in the blue color ( also any breed ) these chickens will be pets only - so a breed that is easy to handle would be great ( i know this varies on bird more than breed ).
    I also dont mind " mutts " I think they are the cutiest of all !!

    I have some mutt chicks available right now but most of them are cockerals. I will have more available in the spring. The older chicks have to be shipped express, and that's kind of expensive. Unless I get a Sportsman, I won't have enough chicks out of each hatch to safely ship priority. The "mutt" chicks are EE Bantam X OEGB, and are going to be $2.00 each, but I'm planning to keep the blue chicks out of them. In the spring, there should really be a minimum of 25, but in the summer time, you could probably safely do 10 (I'm talking day-olds here).
