Ay yi yi!!! I went online the other night to place an order with McMurray Hatcheries and was stunned at the prices- the same order for 25 chicks that was under $50 two years ago will now cost almost $75!!!! I wound up not placing the order and now I am going to have to really think about this. It isn't that I can't afford them, but I'm just not sure that they are worth $75 to me. I think I will try some other hatcheries- I have always been happy with the chicks I have gotten from MM, but they are usually the most expensive. In fact, we don't "need" any more chickens right now, but I know that I eventually want to add some other breeds and I am getting nervous about being able to get them in the future- and even if they are available later on the cost might be even more prohibitive than it is now. Has anyone else noticed this increase, or is it just me because I am so cheap, lol?
