I'm hoping for some help
We live in Central (Northern'ish) Arizona, Prescott, to exact and are looking to add to our flock. We have 7 hens now and we want to add another Barred Rock and White Leghorn. We are wanting a couple Buff Orphingtons and Black Copper Marans. Our daughter is thinking maybe another Ameraucana.
Do you know anywhere in AZ that we can order them from that would guarantee we would get hens? Or which would be the best hatchery to order from that would be close to us? If they are in AZ they would have to be within 1.5 hrs for us to pick up as I can only sit in a car 3 hrs top. ( I'm on disability due to back problems and 3 back surgeries )
I've read this post by Golden Feather http://www.backyardchickens.com/t/977330/adding-new-chicks-to-the-flock to hubby and love it. We intend to use this plan to add the new girls in as we used a similar situation when we had to separate Forest from the rest of the girls while she healed with stitches. We put a cage inside the coop so she could see and stay close to the rest of them and it worked great. A lot of the time the other girls would nap on the floor next to her.
Anyway, any and all suggestions welcome.
