    Hi there,

    My family and I recently moved to Enumclaw, WA and plan getting four, day-old pullets next spring. Do any of your have advice on places to get day-old chicks in this area? I should probably mention the breeds I'm interested in—and yes, there are more options here than I have space for! [​IMG] Since we have small kids, the emphasis is on personality first followed by eggs.

    Breeds (in order of preference, though they all seem good!):
    Plymouth Rock (Barred)
    Orpington (Buff)
    Ameraucana (my wife seems interested in this one)
    Speckled Sussex
    Dorking (probably won't find this, but can't hurt to ask!)

    I have found places on-line that will ship less than 25 chick but I'm concerned that we're too far away from a major metropolitan area to make this a good option. I have spoken to our local feed store but I'd rather keep that option as a last-resort since they only plan to get two of the breeds I'm interested in (Australorp and Orpington).

    Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks!

    I say go ahead and get 25 [​IMG]

    It's pretty easy to sell extra girls around here in the Seattle area at least.
