    I'm in North Carolina looking for a breeder close who has chicks or starter eggs for sale. Very interested in the blue and splash varieties. If you have any or know of a good place to look, please let me know. The few folks I've talked to are way out west or won't have any until summer/fall.

    That would be brilliant! We have really been excited since we took on our "free birds". We - my husband and I - have had lots of experience with horses, cows and goats, but never chickens. But I think we've caught the fever.

    We really want to breed specific varieties instead of just throwing birds together. The Black, Blues and "split lavender" are just amazing.

    I'd love to come see your set up. I am getting ideas for expansion of our coop. You can reach me at [email protected] or my cell is Do not post phone numbers on line for internet safety. Use e-mail to pass that on to individual people
    Thanks,

    We also have just hatched Blue Jersey Giant chicks if that is the breed you are going with.

    I have some extra blue cockerels. Waiting for the hens to start laying. Some are 28 weeks and some are 23 weeks old. Once they start laying I will have some once I separate them and check fertility.
