I'm in Pensacola, FL, and I want to start a small backyard chicken flock (about 4 layers). I've done a *lot* of reading and I'm pretty sure that I know what I want. I'm having trouble finding sexed chicks in the area. I'd like to avoid ordering chicks in the mail because of the stress on the chicks and minimum ording quantities. I live downtown and definitely can't have a rooster.
Can anyone recommend a good, humane source for chicks of varying breeds within 100 miles? I'm also looking for organic, or soy/corn free feed, but that's less important if I don't find a source for chicks! Any help and advise is appreciated.
