Hi There, I am going to start breeding chickens and plan on building two separate breeding pens for two different breeds. I have been reading up and I am really Leaning towards Black Copper Marans and either Sicilian Buttercups or Langshans. I have a pretty good idea that i could get Langshans or Sicilian Buttercups from a hatchery, though they won't be quality, but I have been looking and looking to ge my hands on Black Copper Marans. Just about all of the hatcheries are sold out and won't be getting chicks until March 2012! But I want to find a breeder who breeds PUREBRED BCMs, and who doesn't just have hatchery chicks. I would like a decent price, Around 10- Per chick. I have to have a certain money spending limit. I am looking for just 1 Rooster, and around 4 Hens to breed. But, If you can't sex them and you as a breeder just have straight run, I would have to take more to be sure i don't get all roos or all pullets or only 2 or 1 pullets. I don't want to spend 70$s on 5 chicks. But, I have some Lines to draw. I need a Breeder Who Breeds PUREBRED BCMs. I need a breeder who can SHIP chicks. I LIVE IN VIRGINIA. I can come pick up chicks if you live around IN VIRGINIA. Otherwise, I would have to have you ship them. I am really looking for good prices, no out of this world prices. I UNDERSTAND that this type of chicken is pretty rare. Thankyou, and PLEASE post if you are a breeder. I would be glad to buy from you.
