    Everyone was right...just a couple chickens is not enough... But I don't want day olds, or any lil' babies, because I am 38 weeks pregnant and just don't have the time for MORE babies! Will pick up or meet part way anywhere in the Portland/Vancouver area, or even quite a distance. I really like my BR, and would like a silkie too.... I am open to just about any good laying or cool looking chicken... They mostly just make my day to have in the yard, free ranging the garden. [​IMG]

    The only thing is they need to be old enough to go outside... a couple months old would be perfect....Thank you so much for any info!

    I live in Everett WA and will be putting up some silkies that are almost 4 months old and possibly two that are 2 years old and proven broodies. Silkies aren't the best layers and like to set so might not be a best match for you if you want eggs. I'll probably be picking out the ones to sell in a few weeks, but...that would be one long 3 hour drive for a few birds. All are pet quality and I sell girls for $15 each and males for $5. They are all free ranged and so are predator savvy and been out doors since 3 weeks old if that is what you are seeking. They are only fenced out of the gardens. Best of luck on your search, and send me a line if you can't find any closer.

    I just checked Craigslist in Portland, OR and there are at least 3 posts with laying hens in them. I check about every other day and there is always something. If you are willing to drive to Scappoose, there is a gal there who has a ton of hens she is selling. I just got 3 bantams from her tonight.

    I can give you her info if you are interested? Just let me know.

    Good luck!
