    Try searching craigslist in areas close to you. There is a lady here in Jacksonville that has a bunch of chicks for $4 each and will sell 1, 2, 4, 15, whatever you want. They are young 5 days old.

    When I was looking for chicks at Christmas time, I found none local, but a few sellers in nearby cities.

    ALSO, find the swap listing here on BYC for your area and post a request there.

    Oh! go to a swap! Let me look for cmomc Florida swap list, or find nava's sunny side up Florida list.
    I will see what I can search out for you. [​IMG]

    Yes, that would make it difficult. Post on the Florida thread and maybe a really nice BYC'r in your area can bring you some chicks.
