    There are several feed stores and at least one store that emphasizes backyard farms and gardens in the Portland area that sell chicks in the spring.

    Thank you for letting me know, the problem with getting chicks is I go to school and my husband works full time and we would not be able to take care of the chicks and I'm doubtful the hens would take care of the peeps.

    Check with the feed stores and urban farm stores; they often know of people who have POL pullets available. Also, check with the local 4-H groups - some groups raise laying birds and sell them at the 4-H shows held at the country fair or through other channels.
