    I'm not necessarily looking for SQ chickens (although I don't mind if they're pretty!)--I just want 3 or 4 dual-purpose chickens of different breeds, preferably a Barred Rock, Speckled Sussex, Golden-Laced Wyandotte, and Buff Orpington, but I don't want to buy from a hatchery. I am having the very devil of a time finding anyone!

    The best place to start looking is craigslist. There's a guy in Stanwood who's got birds almost year round, I think. He's got a lot of standards, but an occasional rare breed is in there too. Sells coops, tractors, feeders etc also. I've not dealt with him personally, but it's worth a try.

    I just looked at the farm and garden section, looked under the search word chicks and there are literally dozens of postings. Lots to choose from!

    Good luck!
