Does anyone know where?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hello Everyone,

 

Does anyone know where I can find local (Miami, Florida ) or online that I can order chicks (Rhode Island Red ) looking for 5 or less.  The coop I am planning in getting will be for 3 or 4 hens only.

 

Thank you for your help,

Alex

Miami, FL

Hi Alex, welcome to BYC! :welcome

 

I like My Pet Chicken.  This is where I got my chicks from and they do ship small orders.  My RIR are friendly and healthy.  You can also look for a feed store near you, RIR are pretty common to be found there and we are just about at chick season! 

 

Be careful with the purchased, ready made coops.  A lot of them (most of them) say they are for 3-4 hens but really they are only suited to two!  Especially a bigger bodied hen like a Rhode Island.  If you want 4-5 chickens buy a coop that says it's for 8-10.
