    You can get 3 from mypetchicken.com. Shipping is pretty expensive though. Or if you are in Southern California, you can have a couple of mine. I have too many!

    Where are you located? There may be BYCers in your area with some chicks.

    you can get some at Ideal Poultry, I dont know where your located but Ideal does have free shipping in most places in TX.. Just make sure you pay extra (not much) for insurance unless you want a bunch of peanuts (mostly roos added to you shipment for warmth)..

    As long as you do not add chicks to an adult flock, you will be fine. Purchase a point of lay or laying hen if you want to put it with yours immediately (N.B. make sure you quarantine for 3 weeks first unless you want to lose your flock) or if you get chicks, raise them separately until they are almost adult size before integrating them or your current chickens will kill them.
