I live in Southern California - specifically the Los Angeles suburbs!
We have no hatcheries near us and rarely any breeders ):
I was lucky to find someone only 40 minutes away from me that had amazing breeds.. it was truly heaven!
I was half expecting a sketchy place when I got there but gosh.. the facility was gorgeous!
Super clean, very spacious, and so many wonderfully made pens for chickens/breeds of all ages!
Off the top of my head (the breeds that he had that I can still remember): French Blue and Black Copper Marans, true Blue Ameraucana's, Speckled Sussex's,
Barnevelder's, Silver and Red Laced Blue Wyandotte's, Dark and Light Brahma's, Buff Orpington's, Australorps, Silkies, Cream Legbars and much more!
The best part is that they are all $15, except for the Blue Copper Marans, which are $20!
I bought his last Blue Ameraucana and Cream Legbar! Of course I also had to pick up Red Laced Blue Wyandotte since I didn't have one!
I'm going back there this weekend (he hatches every Friday) for another Cream Legbar, Barnevelder, and Blue Copper Maran
Not sure where his stock is from.. but I do know he acquired his Cream Legbars from some guy that bred them for 30 years in San Diego then retired..
Maybe he got his Ameraucana's there too?
He promised me that he breeds true Ameraucana's.
I believe the guy, since he also offers Easter Egger's.
Anyways, here's some pictures of Akeira:
Should I be worried about the bit of brown on her head?
They were straight run.. so I'm really hoping this is a pullet
