So, I've had to edit this post a couple of times. I'm looking to (preferably) BLR Brahma hens, will consider blue partridge, or BLR Wyandotte pullets, probably 5. I'd love to find a breeder, somewhat close - 1 & 1/2 hr away max. I live in Athens, PA If I can't find a breeder to purchase pullets from, I'm getting information around on those that sell either sexed chicks, or fertile eggs, for next spring. If I go with fertile eggs, I'll be looking to get them about a month before Easter, because I told someone I could hatch out some of my own dark brahma eggs for them the week before Easter. The closer the better, but I'm also going to be looking at ratings so that if I do have to get chicks or eggs in the mail, I am more secure in their safe arrival. Also, this will be my first time ordering eggs, if that's the way I go - so if anyone has any pointers on what questions I should be asking, & what I should be looking for, PLEASE PLEASE give me some advice!
