    The best place to get chicks will depend on the type of chicks you want (not just breed, but also whether you want production type, heritage type, exhibition bred, etc), the number of chicks you want, whether you want to be able to purchased sexed birds or are okay with straight run, if you are open to having them shipped or want to buy them locally, etc.
