Welcome to BYC!!!

There are several options for purchasing coop ready birds - you can source them from some hatcheries, but the expense will be considerable as the price to purchase and ship birds at that age is much higher than that of day-old chicks.  A better option for you, cost wise, would be to find someone near you who has birds they are wanting to sell.   Where are you located?  You can find other members here on BYC who are in the same area by posting to the "where are you/where am I" area - you may also find poultry groups for your area on Facebook and you can find birds for sale on Craigslist.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

I have 3 RSL girls in my mixed flock and originally I selected them for their egg laying abilities but they have turned out to be some of the most fun chickens ever! They are curious, alert, ornery little girls that are always into something...they keep us laughing every day at something they do.

 

I hope when you find some, you enjoy them as much as we do!

Did a moth know that the flame was going to change her life forever, or did she simply fly towards that heated embrace, knowing it would offer her something she couldn't give herself? In the end, the answer didn't really matter. The moth had never wanted the choice. -Joey W. Hill-
