Hey Gang, I lost the last of my good brown egg laying hens - black australorp - to a hawk this week and I need to restore the herd (I love the eggs). I am looking for pullets or young hens which can lay good sized brown eggs. I prefer heavy breeds like the australops or jersy giants and need calm birds since I have a young daughter who loves to feed and care for the hens. Please let me know if you have any birds to sell or have a good hachery which might sell pullets (I would like to avoid chicks if possible) in the area of south-central PA, western maryland, or easters west virginia. I will drive a little way for the right chicken. Thanks for everyones help.
