So I have ordered my first ever chicken coop (delivery in 6 weeks). I now have to figure out how to get a couple of chickens (6ish). I want good layers, that look different from each other and the kids want a few funny lookin ones. Someone told me to go to the flea market to buy them....but....after years of seeing stressed/unheathy puppies and kittens brought to my veterinary practice that have been purchased at "the flea market", I am uncomfortable with that option. I am concerned that the chickens won't be healthy or will be stressed. I am completely ignorant on how to aquire chickens! Buying bulk and selling the extras on Craig's list is not an undertaking I am willing to take on. Anyone have any insights on aquiring chickens in Asheville, NC? I am not in the market for another 6 weeks or so.
