    Okay, I wanted to find a place locally to pick up the 8 chicks I want/have room for. I am having a hell of a time finding a local place that I can go pick up just 8. I live in Northern Indiana, super close to the MI border as well as IL. I don't want to pay for a small order shipped this time of year... 8 chicks will cost me over $100 at some places. So, Nature's Hatchery has a minimum order of 15 (for a total with shipping of like $55). Is there anyone that is willing to take the "extra" chicks? I'll be ordering black australorps, silver and golden laced wynadottes, a buff orpington or two, an araucana or two, a barred rock or two. I'll be ordering all females as I just want some eggs for now. Is there anyone out there who is willing to come get the extra chicks I order? I won't ship them, I'm completely new to this, it's my first batch of chicks.

    I know I' brand new here....but everything I've been told says to start with more then you want. You might lose a few and don't want to be right back in this position or trying to find only a few.

    If I'm wrong...hopefully someone will correct me.
