Ok, talked to Ideal Poultry. I can order the end of Jan. for a spring delivery. They will mark chicks if requested, and will contact me when they ship them (so I can be there right away to pick them up). I don't have to have a minimum amount of chicks, but do have to have a minimum $25 order (like that will be hard to achieve). I've had some folks here interested -- anyone else wanting to get in on it? Send me your list of birds you want and what delivery time works best for you -- I'm looking at sometime between end of April and first of June due to weather for shipping. I think I'm getting 2-3 of each for myself: Barred Rocks Speckled Sussex Buff Orps Australorpes Easter Eggers Salmon Faverolles and a Silkie or two, you know, for the kids ;D Anyone else wanting some of those breeds, just let me know, I'll order extra.
