Pouring footings

I am going to pour ten footings, 42" deep and 8" diameter. This would be a little less that 1.5 cubic feet of concrete per hole. how should I do it? My choices are:
Mix concrete in wheel barrow, and shovel into holes.

Rent a power mixer.

Contract it out, having it delevered and poured.

pjb1, you are looking at about 1/2 yard of concrete, total. Not anything you will find a truck to deliver. You could use 90# bags of redi-mix (2/3 ft. per bag) and mix it in a wheelbarrow. Probably not worth the hassle of even renting a mixer for. You're only looking at 23 bags.
