No, you do not need to order an excessive amount of the bird you need, but you do need an order which meets our total minimum requirement. For example, if you just wanted 5 Easter Egger Chickens, you could meet the rest of the minimum order requirement with Assorted Chicks (the most cost effective way), or by mixing and matching other chick/turkeys breeds that we sell. Please note, some breeds do have a Breed Specific Minimum of 5 chicks, so if you see a "5" already in the quantity box, you cannot order less than 5 of that breed.
