    For Mothers Day we were supposed to go to the Valley (Palmer / Wasilla) and fetch some layers. Much to my surprise... there are none to be found. Yes, I have posted an ad on Craigslist, called several farms in the Valley and none...nietz, nada, no layers !

    So I ask... where does a girl turn ? My coop is ready to go, and not a chick in sight !

    Any ideas ?

    Hello, Alaskan Quilter,

    PM me and I can send you some links for some alaska poultry and livestock links. There are several people in the valley that may be able to help you out but at this time of year, everyone is chasing their chicks and renovating their coops and yards, so may not be reading craigslist right now.

    Hi Leslie,
    I don't know if my messages are getting through to you as I am not seeing them in my "sent" box after I send them to you. Anyhoot... if you can try to message me back then perhaps I can better figure out how to connect with you and hopefully be led to some chicks for sale. :)

    Thanks a million.

    Hello,

    Messages don't show in your sent box unless you click on the option at the bottom that says "save message"

    I did get your pm's and sent you a couple of links that will help connect you will other Alaskans who have birds/chicks available.

    Which farms did you try? Triple D? Burke Family Farm? They have chicks, but not started pullets. How many/what breed are you looking for?
