    The one in Huntingtown has a big sign out front saying they have chicks in. Worth giving them a call.

    231 also has a bunch in their store.

    I just read one of those horror stories yesterday. Quite a few dead birds, and the one's that weren't dead will probably never be normal. I freaked out when I didn't get my birds the day after they were mailed. They were only a day late, but it doesn't take much.
    If I need to, I'll buy from the same breeder again (he doesn't do buff orps). I ordered 6 straight, got 8, and it looks like one will be a rooster. Perfect. I couldn't be happier.

    This is who I've always bought from.. Chickens and Ducks.. Ameracuana Chickens and Khaki Campbell and Pekin ducks.

    I've bought both fertilized eggs and hatched myself (with a better than 90% hatch rate).. and chicks.
