    I think several hatcheries do. I believe Moyers chicks does, and others. Shipping will be expensive though. Where are you located, that might help. [​IMG]

    I haven't heard of any hatchery that sells started pullets. They specialize in shipping day-old chicks only. You need to try to find local breeders for bigger birds, or maybe look up the websites for the breeds you want...I think there are "clubs" for most breeds.

    ETA: OK, after doing a google search, it looks like a few hatcheries do ship started pullets (Meyer, Murray McMurray) but the shipping cost is huge and there are only a few breeds available. What breeds do you want? Maybe someone here has extra pullets they can sell to you. You can post in the Buy-Sell-Trade section.

    Are they just out of them right now? I was sure they sold them. Hmm, let me think what else would be here in the east.

    I may have misunderstood, your title says started pullets, but are you just looking for chicks?
