Calling all Chick Mama's

Okay, Ladies I need help. Most of the Hatcheries will only let you place a 25 chick minimum order. What do I do? I really don't want 25 to start out with. Any ideas?

I could check with my Uncle and see if he wants some or knows someone who will take them, I guess. That's one idea.

I am TRYING not to make some joke about deep frying the ones you don't want...I'm really trying.

gnightgirl: that's not very nice, all though if I ordered straight run then I could do something with the roosters. Not sure I'm ready for the butchering part yet.

Have you looked into Cackle Hatchery or My Pet Chicken? I think I've read over at BYC that these places let you order smaller numbers. They might have better info for you over there. Could probably do a search at the forum and ge tthe answer to your question right away.

Thanks farm mom. My Pet Chicken will let you haven't checked Cackle yet. Do I want the Marek's vacc?

farm mom said...

yes. coccidiosis vac doesn't hurt either if they have it.

A friend and I went in together when we ordered from Privett's Hatchery.

What's funny is that she picked them up from the post office and then separated them.

She ended up with 3 roosters.....I got none! hehe
She wants me to take some of her roosters. What should I do?

hehehe :P

Twinville: Do you want a roo? I didn't think I did but after reading blog after blog about their funny antics I decided we needed one. Plus my youngest is hoping we will hatch a clutch out. We'll see.
